Radiology is a branch of medicine that deals with radiant energy to diagnose and treat many diseases. A physician who specializes in radiology is called radiologist.
A radiologist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating disease and injuries through the use of modern medical imaging techniques such as X-Ray, CT Scan, MRI, nuclear medicine, fusion imaging, ultrasound etc. Because these techniques involve the use of radiation, adequate training and understanding of radiation as well as safety and protection measures is highly important.
B.Sc. Radiology programme trains students in both traditional and latest technology. B.Sc. Radiology introduces the student to the two broad categories of the science of Radiology – i.e. Diagnostic Radiology and Interventional Radiology. Diagnostic Radiology concerns with the use of X-Ray imaging and allied techniques whereas Interventional Radiology deals with the use of invasive procedures. Students can choose to pursue Ph.D. or M.Phil. to specialize in a number of allied fields like Diagnostic Radiology, Radiation Oncology, Vascular and Interventional Radiology Pediatric Radiology, Nuclear Radiology, Pain Medicine and Neuro-radiology.
The proliferation of medical facilities and the Government’s thrust on healthcare has resulted in increasing number of prospects for Radiology professionals. After successfully completing the program students typically find employment in specialty clinics, nursing homes, public health centers, hospitals and diagnostic centers. Like in most other medical science professions, radiologists also start by working as an apprentice to Senior Radiologists. B.Sc. Radiology graduates can work in a number of job profiles such as Radiology Assistant, Radiographer, Radiology Technician, Radiologist, Ultrasound Technician, MRI Technician and CAT Technologist.
