Other specialities and imaging modalities

Other specialities and imaging modalities apart of radiology are also utilizing the beneficial effects of ionizing radiation. The most frequent type of radiological procedures are the dental examinations. Ionizing radiation is also used for diagnosing diseases in the kidney and urinary tract or by orthopaedic surgeons, who increasingly use X-ray based fluoroscopic techniques in operation theatres or in the fluoroscopy rooms.
