(ray-dee-OL-oh-jist)

A doctor who specializes in taking pictures of areas inside the body and figuring out what they show. The pictures are made with x-rays, sound waves, or other types of energy. This kind of doctor can also use imaging studies to guide procedures. For example, ultrasound can help a radiologist do a breast biopsy.
