Radiologist reviewing results


A radiologist is a doctor who works behind the scenes to interpret, or read, medical images in order to diagnose and treat diseases or injuries. Radiologists use images from X-rays, CT, MRI, ultrasound, PET, or nuclear imaging examinations to recommend the next steps in your care, whether that be for more examinations or treatment. Interventional radiologists use imaging guidance to perform minimally invasive procedures that replace conventional surgery. Radiologists complete at least 13 years of training, including medical school, a four-year residency, and most often, an additional one- or two-year fellowship of very specialized training. Radiologists are certified by the American Board of Radiology.

Blog: Working and Living in Lima

During the twentieth century, Lima experienced the typical boom and bust years of Ohio’s other industrialized cities. In the early twentieth century, the oil industry continued to prosper as did Lima’s production of railroad products. As the oilfields dried up and Americans chose car and truck over railroad traffic, Lima suffered. Today, Lima is experiencing a resurgence with a lot of new and exciting projects in the works. Lima is a great place to raise a family with top schools in Shawnee and Bath Townships. Did you also know that Lima is a college town?
