“Clinical radiologists are specialist doctors trained to read and interpret medical images, using a wide range of imaging techniques including X-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) and molecular imaging. Radiologists also run patient clinics, take biopsy samples and prepare patients for surgery. 
Many radiologists will specialise, becoming experts in areas such as musculoskeletal, breast, cardiac, paediatric or gastrointestinal imaging. 
Some radiologists will work as ‘generalists’, working on all types of hospital imaging and sometimes performing interventional work too.” [Source]
