What is Radiology?

Radiological procedures are used for looking at the internal structures of the body, whether bone or soft tissue. Usually these examinations are carried out to:

  • diagnose disease states, such as infection, heart disease or other abnormalities
  • show the extent of injury to body structures
  • to aid in interventional procedures, such as biopsies.
Different methods such as X-ray, Computer Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Ultrasound as well as some other specialised types of radiological imaging are used to show the body's internal structures.

The Clinical Teams at Middlemore Hospital and Manukau SuperClinic consist of:

  • Medical Radiation Technologists (MRTs) or Radiographers who perform your X-ray examinations.
  • Sonographers who perform your ultrasound examinations.
  • Radiologists who are specialist doctors who interpret your images. They will also be involved if you have a specialist investigation such as an intravenous urogram (IVU), barium study, or biopsy.
  • Radiology nurses provide patient care and specialist support for Radiology procedures.
