Treat diseases specific procedures. Radiologists may also administer treatment ranging from interventional radiology, which is a minimally-invasive, therapeutic procedure, to radiation oncology.
Perform diagnostic imaging. In addition to performing diagnostic imaging, radiologists may be tasked with correlating diagnostic results with the results of other examinations.
Make specific recommendations. When necessary, radiologists may recommend further examination or treatment to the referring physician.
Provide guidance for radiologic technologists. Part of the radiologist’s role is to provide direction to the radiologic technologists that actually operate the radiologic equipment. This ensures the proper administration of examination procedures.
