Why radiologist is important
Basically, all a neurologist can “see “ is the effects of injury to the nervous system, changes in gait, muscle tension abnormalities, and history of previous events. From this, he can make an educated guess as to the diagnosis.
Unfortunately, the same signs may be caused by other pathology. Thanks to the wonders of computerised X-Ray devices (CAT scans) and NMR the radiologist can find the plaques of damage in the spinal cord and brain to give a definitive diagnosis.
Radiologist gives a detailed report to the doctor
A doctor specialising in a particular field (like an orthopedist or an ENT or a neurosurgeon or a urologist) orders a CT scan. Once CT releases the images to PACS the radiologist reads the entire scan 1000s upon 1000s of images. The radiologist looks at everything and comments on everything. Say the scan ordered by the urologist for kidney stones shows stones but there’s also a pancreatic cyst or an aortic aneurysm or a metastatic lesion in a bone.
The radiologist will comment on all problems in all organs and bones etc. This radiology second opinion will go to the urologist when finalized. This helps them to give the best treatment for their patients and cure their health problem at right time.
