Diagnostic radiology is the medical field dedicated to the diagnosis of lesions located inside the body using X-rays, or more generally radiation. A variety of external procedures or x-ray exams are used to obtain images of the body. The best-known examination is certainly the X-ray image taken using X-rays.

The radiologist is the specialist in the field and masters the most recent examination methods. He is qualified to judge the usefulness of the examinations prescribed by his colleagues in order to make and confirm the desired diagnosis. The radiologist also has the task of interpreting the results of the examinations obtained. His close collaboration with his fellow specialists and fellow prescribers is essential in order to guide the treatment plan for patients.
