Ultrasound and Diagnostic Imaging in London.
Radiology is a very niche specialization in medicine. There are not many radiologists in Poland. Currently, there are about 3,000 of them, but 20% of them are doctors over 60 years of age. The National Health Fund is wringing its hands as the waiting time for an appointment with a radiologist specialist is currently around 10 months.
The number of necessary radiological examinations performed in hospitals and private clinics is growing every year. This situation is caused not only by the increasing number of devices, computer tomographs or magnetic resonance imaging in clinics, but most of all by the fact that modern medicine relies more and more on radiology and diagnosing patients using imaging methods. Medical standards are changing and necessitating an increased number of high-quality radiological examinations.
In emergency medicine, a tomography of all parts of the body where changes are suspected is performed. In oncology, a set of ultrasound examinations of the head, chest, pelvis and ultrasound of the abdominal cavity are repeated every 3 months. Orthopedics relies heavily on ultrasound and tomography to treat joints and tendons.
In Great Britain, the number of radiologists compared to the demand is as small as in Poland. In the UK, about 4,000 doctors are involved in radiology.
