InsideRadiology

InsideRadiology is the leading Australasian resource on clinical radiology tests, procedures, and interventions, providing up-to-date information to health consumers and health professionals and improving doctor-patient communication.

InsideRadiology has two key audiences:

  • health consumers (patients, their families and friends); and
  • health professionals (referring clinicians and allied health professionals).

InsideRadiology is a conduit of communication between Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR), health consumers, and health professionals; further promoting the role and value of clinical radiology and clinical radiologists in patient care.

Clinical radiology is a specialised branch of medicine that uses state of the art equipment and a range of techniques to capture images of the inside of the body.

Clinical radiologists (radiologists) are qualified medical doctors trained to perform and interpret medical images to diagnose and sometimes treat injuries and diseases of all parts of the body.

You may be referred to a clinical radiologist by your doctor or specialist.
