A radiologist is someone who reads diagnostic films. Examples of the types of tests that radiologists read include ultrasounds, X-rays, CT scans, mammograms, sonograms and MRIs. While radiology technology has greatly assisted medical professionals, it’s only as good as the proper interpretation of the data that’s collected. Essentially, if a medical professional fails to properly read a radiology film, it can have serious repercussions on the person who received the wrong reading.
