Body Imaging

Body imagers are radiologists specializing in the use and interpretation of cross-sectional imaging techniques.

Body imagers are radiologists specializing in the use and interpretation of the latest imaging techniques for evaluation of the chest, abdomen and pelvis. These radiologists have completed additional fellowship training in body imaging after their radiology residency at some of the most prestigious institutions in the country.

Radiologists with this specialty primarily use CT, ultrasound and MRI. They analyze, or "read," the images from these exams to identify infected, diseased, injured, and abnormal tissue throughout the body. They diagnose a large variety of conditions that affect the organs and tissue in the trunk of the body, including gastrointestinal, heart, and lung problems.

These radiologists also utilize CT, ultrasound, and MRI to conduct image-guided procedures. These include precise biopsies that help identify abnormal tissue without surgery and catheter drainage of abnormal fluid collections.
