Diagnostic Radiology

Diagnostic radiology generally uses non-invasive techniques to create images of the body, its organs, and other internal structures. Your oncologist uses diagnostic radiology to diagnose and locate the presence of cancer in the body as well as to track your body’s response to treatment. Diagnostic radiology tests may use x-rays, sound waves, radio waves, as well as radioactive waves and particles that are recorded by photographic films or other types of detectors.
