Radiology and Imaging

Radiology is the research of images of the human body. It is the branch of medicine that deals with the research and application of imaging technologies such as computed tomography, ultrasound, mammography, CT angiography and magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography to see within the body to be able to identify disease and abnormalities. The OMICS Publishing Group Conference on Radiology and Imaging gathers experts from all the underlying disciplines on to a single platform to confer about the latest advances in Radiology and Imaging at the OMICS Conference of Radiology and Imaging.

Radiologist is a medical professional specializing in the branch of medical science like MRIs, X-rays, CT scans. Radiologists work in a public or private radiology practices. They are there to help other doctors in detecting and treating illness. Radiographer is a person who performs the radiography imaging scans, such as X-rays - they operate the imaging machines.  The concepts of radiology and imaging, along with the latest developments in the respective domain, are discussed by the delegates of the OMICS Conference on Radiology and Imaging.

The OMICS Conference on Radiology and Imaging gathers experts from 3 types of radiology. These are Diagnostic, Interventional and Therapeutic (called radiation oncology). Diagnostic imaging uses simple X-ray radiology, computerised tomography (CT) and nuclear medicine imaging techniques to obtain images. Interventional radiologists are also part of the OMICS Conference on Radiology and Imaging to treat the irregularities of the brain or spinal cord. Radiation oncology uses radiation to cure diseases such as cancer, using radiotherapy.

Imaging involves creating an image of the inner settings of a dense object, which in radiology usually means a part of the human body with the use of rays. Imaging tests are different from endoscopy (like a colonoscopy or bronchoscopy), which puts a flexible, lighted tube with a lens or a camera inside your body. The exact methodologies followed in each of the disciplines like imaging tests and radiology scanning. Doctors use imaging tests to make images of the inside of your body. Imaging tests can be used in many ways, including identifying the signs for cancer, to find out how far it has propagated.

Limitations of imaging tests can find large collections of cancer cells, but no imaging test can display a single cancer cell. In fact, it requires millions of cells to make a tumor big enough for an area to look irregular on an imaging test. This is why doctors sometimes suggest treatment even when cancer cells cannot be seen through an imaging test. The OMICS Conference on Radiology and Imaging finds the best imaging experts to confer on the Imaging and Radiology techniques for the test.

The OMICS Publishing Group International Scientific Conference on Radiology and Imaging is scheduled to be held during August 14-16, 2013 at Chicago Northshore, USA.
