  1. Advances in Therapeutic Radiology

    One newer therapy combines radiation and chemotherapy, because in some cases, radiation may improve the effects of chemotherapy, and vice versa. Another therapy uses external beam radiation during surgery to treat cancerous tumors or certain other forms of cancer.

  2. Arteriogram

    Detailed information on arteriogram, also called angiogram, including information on how the procedure is performed

  3. Barium X-Rays (Upper and Lower GI)

    Detailed information on barium x-rays, also called upper and lower GI series, including information on how the procedure is performed

  4. Brachytherapy

    Brachytherapy is radiation treatment that is given inside the patient, as close to the cancer as possible. The radiation is delivered to the body site with radioactive isotopes inside wires, seeds, or rods. These devices are called implants.

  5. Computed Tomography (CT or CAT) Scan

    Detailed information on computed tomography scans, also called CT scan or CAT scan, including information on how the procedure is performed

  6. Diagnostic Radiology

    Detailed information on the most common procedures used for diagnostic radiology, including arteriogram, barium x-ray, computed tomography scan, fluoroscopy, intravenous pyelogram, magnetic resonance imaging, mammogram, ultrafast CT scan, ultrasound, x ra

  7. External Beam Therapy

    External beam therapy is a type of therapeutic radiology that is delivered externally from a machine directed to the cancer inside the patient. Examples of external beam therapy machines include linear accelerators, cobalt machines, or orthovoltage X-ray machines.

  8. Fluoroscopy

    Detailed information on fluoroscopy, including information on how the procedure is performed

  9. Glossary - Radiology

    Glossary of terms relating to radiology

  10. Home Page - Radiology

    Detailed information on radiology, including the radiologist, the radiology team, radiological imaging, diagnostic radiology, therapeutic radiology, radiation oncology, and interventional radiology

  11. Interventional Radiology

    Detailed information on interventional radiology, including what procedures interventional radiologists perform

  12. Intravenous Pyelogram (IVP)

    Detailed information on intravenous pyelogram, including information on how the procedure is performed

  13. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

    Detailed information on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), including information on how the procedure is performed

  14. Mammography
  15. Nuclear Medicine

    Nuclear medicine is a specialized area of radiology that uses very small amounts of radioactive materials to examine organ function and structure. This branch of radiology is often used to help diagnose and treat abnormalities very early in the progression of a disease, such as thyroid cancer.
