The radiologist is an expert in diagnosis, through review of images such as x-ray, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computerised tomography (CT). Radiologists advise doctors on the best examination for a patient, in some cases explaining the process to the patient, and supervise the examination. They also interpret the results of the examination. In addition, radiologists may treat some diseases guided by imaging equipment. Using diagnostic radiology in therapeutic intervention is becoming more common as technology advances. Initiatives such as breast screening have increased the workload of radiologists in New Zealand in the past few years. 1
