What you should know about radiology
- Most radiological exams are noninvasive and painless. Many can be performed in an outpatient setting.
- Some radiological exams, like mammography, are used as preventive screening tools to check for signs of developing disease.
- Interventional radiology, a surgical branch of radiology, allows interventional radiologists to perform minimally invasive procedures guided by real-time imaging.
