Radiology is the branch or specialty of medicine that deals with the study and application of imaging technology like x-ray and radiation to diagnosing and treating disease.
First, the interventional radiologist will use some form of imaging (CT, MRI, ultrasound, or mammography) to determine the best site for the biopsy. Next, a member of the interventional radiology team will wash the area where the needle biopsy will be performed and put local anesthetic in the skin and deeper tissues to numb the area.

The interventional radiologist will then use CAT scan or some other imaging to guide a small needle into the abnormal area. The patient may feel some pressure in the area.

The radiologist will use the biopsy needle to remove a tiny piece of tissue or some cells from the abnormal area. The tissue sample is sent to a pathologist, who will examine it under a microscope. Usually, the results of the biopsy are ready in two to three days.

. The road to a career as a radiologist typically begins with earning a bachelor's degree. Medical school prerequisite courses include biology, chemistry and physics. A number of undergraduate students choose to work or volunteer in medical settings to gain experience.

They then continue with four years of medical school to become a physician. Medical school consists of two years of classroom education in science, such as anatomy, pathology, pharmacology and biochemistry, followed by two years of clinical rotations in different areas, such as pediatrics, surgery and internal medicine.
