radiology in Qatar

Radiology is a field known as diagnostic imaging that deals with diagnosing ailments by conducting a series of tests. It includes taking multiple pictures of the parts of the body using radiant energy to identify and evaluate conditions and treat them.

It is broadly divided into two areas, namely interventional radiology and diagnostic radiology, which focuses on internal imaging organs and evaluating the underlying issues. It plays an integral role in the medical field, coordinating with other departments like orthopedic, oncology, obstetrics, pediatrics, surgery, trauma, emergency medicine, and infectious disease.

Radiology helps in detecting multiple diseases and conditions like:

  • Orthopedic Trauma and Fracture
  • Blood clots and peripheral artery disease
  • Anemia
  • Alzheimer's
  • Dementia
  • Brain tumors
  • Different types of cancers
  • Pneumonia
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases (COPD)
  • Kidney and bladder stones
  • Arthritis and osteoporosis, etc.
Why Radiology Crucial?

Radiology assists in diagnosing any injury or ailment related to internal body parts, which are integral to accurate disease management. It includes using appropriate tools and techniques for detecting the disease, staging and suggesting treatments.

Is a radiologist a doctor?

Radiologists are medical professionals/doctors who analyze the images acquired through MRI, ultrasound, x-ray, angiography and CT to diagnose underlying diseases or injuries and treat them.

Is ultrasound considered radiology?

No. Ultrasound involves high-frequency sound waves to create images of internal organs. It does not use radiation.

What is an MRI vs CT scan?

MRI and CT scans are used for capturing images of internal organs. An MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) utilizes radio waves, whereas a CT scan (Computed tomography) uses X-rays.

What Is the Difference Between Radiology and Medical Imaging?

Radiology involves using radiation energy to capture the images of internal organs. On the other hand, medical imaging is a branch of medical diagnostics that may or may not use radiation to capture pictures. For example, ultrasound uses sound energy to capture images, while MRI uses radiation energy.

Do I need a physician referral (prescription) to access imaging services?

Yes, patients must get a referral from a medical practitioner for a radiology examination.

Should I do anything special to prepare for my imaging study?

Yes, the patient must follow specific instructions before taking the imaging services.

  • Keep your diet light three days prior to the test.
  • Do not drink or eat anything for a span of 12 hours before the test
  • No preparation is required for X-Ray or CT Scans
  • Keep your stomach empty for 4 to 5 hours before the ultrasound
  • If it is an ultrasound of the lower abdomen, do not empty your bladder unless told by the doctor
  • Drink ½ to 1 liter of water and hold your urine till the bladder is full
  • No preparation is required for an ultrasound of the breast, scrotum or thyroid
How do radiographers and radiologists differ?

Radiologists are medical doctors who are trained in reading and evaluating imaging scans. At the same time, a radiographer is a medical technician who conducts imaging tests.
