Abstract

Radiology is the use of radiant energy for diagnosis and treatment, and includes the use of radium and isotopes as well as x-ray. Roentgenology is the use of x-rays for diagnosis and treatment. Rapid advancements in the field of radiology are such that, after 1960, examinations in radiology, given by The American Board of Radiology, will automatically include nuclear medicine.
