Why should you earn a degree from a radiology graduate school? Individuals who earn a radiologist degree use radiologic and imaging sciences to help other medical professionals diagnose and treat a wide array of illnesses and disorders. Students in radiology graduate programs use imaging technology such as, X-rays, ultrasounds, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to diagnose and treat disease seen within the body. Medical imaging is the process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention. If you are interested in the human body, technology in medicine, and how it can be used to treat disease, a degree in radiology might be right for you.
There are many different types of graduate degrees offered through radiology graduate programs. Students might want to earn a doctor of medicine degree with a specialization in radiology, neuroradiology, or pediatric radiology, or they might want to earn a master of science in biomedical imaging (MSBI).
