Radiology Q & A

What is radiology?

Radiology is a field focused on medical imaging essential for diagnosing and treating disease. This specialty field combines multiple levels of expertise, requiring extensive medical knowledge and high-level skills in using advanced technologies involving radiation, nuclear medicine, and other advanced energy techniques.

There are two types of radiology, diagnostic and interventional. Interventional radiologists use imaging to perform procedures inside the body. However, the All County Radiology providers specialize in diagnostic radiology, producing high-quality images and interpreting the results.

You and your physicians rely on their results to accurately diagnose the cause of your symptoms, guide treatment decisions, monitor your response to treatments, and screen for disease.

What radiology services might I receive?

Radiology includes various imaging techniques, such as PET scans, nuclear medicine, and ultrasound. Your All County Radiology provider specializes in the following:


X-rays create images using a low dose of radiation. While they’re the best choice for diagnosing fractured bones and other bone conditions, X-rays also reveal problems in your soft tissues.


MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create movement in atoms (the smallest structures in your cells). At the same time, a computer interprets the movement and uses it to create highly detailed images.

Your provider uses MRI to create highly detailed images of bones and soft tissues. However, this technique is one of the best for viewing soft tissues, especially your brain, spinal cord, ligaments, muscles, and nerves.

Why should I seek accredited radiology services?

Your health depends on diagnostic imaging results, which means you want to choose a radiology provider who consistently produces high-quality images. All County Radiology is accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and New York’s Article 28 regulations.

The ACR inspects medical facilities and only offers accreditation when the provider and practice meet strict standards for high image quality, accurate interpretation of results, and having exceptionally qualified staff. Article 28 follows a rigorous process regulating the accreditation of facilities.
