Body imaging specialists diagnose and help treat diseases and conditions affecting major body organs and systems, including the lungs, liver, stomach, spine, pelvis, kidneys, colon, pancreas, other organs and throughout the abdomen. A subspecialized body imaging radiologist conducts imaging exams from the throat down to the pelvis up. These radiologists use many types of imaging, including MRI and CT to see inside the body in ways never before imaginable.
By specializing in the body cavity, body imaging physician experts are capable of focusing on additional nuances related to this area of human anatomy to deliver a more detailed analysis of the image. In addition to image interpretation and consultation, these physicians also perform a variety of minimally invasive, image guided procedures to assist their physician colleagues with obtaining a more definitive diagnosis and/or overall patient care, such as MR guided biopsies and stent placement.
