M.D.(Radiology)- Stands for Doctor of Medicine in Radiology. Typically, M.D.(Radiology) is a three year course,minimum eligibility for which is an M.B.B.S with 1 year compulsory internship.Under this degree, students learn about areas such as Radio Physics, Basic Concepts, Production Of X-Rays, Interaction Of Radiation With Matter, Radiation Detection And Measurement, Radiography, Fluoroscopy, Special Radiography, Computed Tomography, Ultrasonography etc.
Radiology is the specialty directing medical imaging technologies to diagnose and sometimes treat diseases. Originally it was the aspect of medical science dealing with the medical use of electromagnetic energy emitted by X-ray machines or other such radiation devices for the purpose of obtaining visual information as part of medical imaging. Radiology that involves use of x-ray is called roentgenology. Today, following extensive training, radiologists also direct other imaging technologies (such as ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging) to diagnose or treat disease. Interventional radiology is the performance of (usually minimally invasive) medical procedures with the guidance of imaging technologies. The acquisition of medical imaging is usually carried out by the radiographer or radiologic technologist. Outside of the medical field, radiology also encompasses the examination of the inner structure of objects using X-rays or other penetrating radiation.
