The physician clinically examines a patient and come to a diagnosis. The surgeon palpates and arrives at a conclusion. But, the radiologist sees beyond what the eye can meet. He sees more than the eye can visualise by reaching out to a spectrum that can diagnose the most hidden of diseases with astounding accuracy.
