Advanced Radiology Care at Fortis Hospitals, Mumbai
Radiology is the branch of medicine that uses medical imaging to diagnose and treat diseases. A variety of imaging techniques such as X-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) are utilised for diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Interventional Radiology (IR) is a sub-speciality which uses these techniques to perform minimally invasive procedures for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
