This article addresses the growing significance of radiology consultation in clinical practice, its impact on the public health system, and the reasons for its lack of popularity.
"Radiological Consultation is now carried out in most developed countries. New projects are being started every year to support radiology and protect the people from radiological and harmful rays that are a major cause of different diseases with cancer being one of them."
Radiological Consultation is now carried out in most developed countries. New projects are being started every year to support radiology and protect the people from radiological and harmful rays that are a major cause of different diseases with cancer being one of them. Furthermore radiation is the main cause for skin diseases which include skin cancer, rashes and even hair loss from some regions. It also leads to thyroid cancer due to Iodine buildup especially in young children . Radiological development in different countries depends upon its economy and use of radiology in its medical sector. Advancements are made accordingly with modern equipment to face the challenging cases that rise each year. Advancements made on MRI has enabled people to conduct the procedures in short times with less anxiety. Besides that 3D printing has enabled 3D Models which have assisted in Neuro-surgery procedures. The International Commission of Radiological Protection has also aimed to reduce the exposure to harmful rays to protect the environment and ecosystem around the globe .
Furthermore, radiology has extended its arm in Africa and Impala to help the less privileged people. Young enthusiastic doctors can lend their help and also work for the cause with the help of this organization. With that being said, Pakistan has also developed Radiological Consultation to occur online as well as on ground; renowned organization such as Shifa4u and Marham.pk now book appointment’s in seconds with best of the radiological consultants present all over Pakistan with best equipment being used to monitor and deal with the demands of patients . Ehad Virtual Health has become one of the first virtual hospitals situated in Pakistan and has been a game changer in these COVID times with minimal exposure of doctors to COVID patients hence, not only reducing the chances of COVID-19 but also providing them with better treatment .These all facilities have carved the future of medical sector to look brighter than ever in Pakistan and we hope that further advancements are made with time.
IMPACT OF RADIOLOGICAL CONSULTATION ON GOVERNMENT, DOCTOR AND PEOPLE
"Radiological consultation has affected the doctors majorly as now, better and modern equipment’s have not only made the procedures time-efficient, they have also allowed more specific and efficient treatment and diagnosis of a particular disease."
With cancer becoming more prevalent in developing countries, the government has taken crucial steps to deal with radiology. Radiological guidelines are being circulated by the government in hospitals for doctors to follow to minimize the effect of radiological rays on the environment and people .Radiological consultation has affected the doctors majorly as now, better and modern equipment’s have not only made the procedures time-efficient, they have also allowed more specific and efficient treatment and diagnosis of a particular disease.
Furthermore radiological consultation has made it easy for the health professionals to have a variety of options when diagnosing diseases, from X-rays to High resolution C-T scans which have made the diagnosis more firm and accurate. Patients have played an essential role in all the changes that have occurred over the years, from appointments being booked with just a tap on their phone to getting diagnosed within minutes. Hence, Radiological Consultation has affected everyone, with some sectors being affected immensely while some may not. Medical, Industrial and Engineering sectors are hit with force due to the pressure of making new machinery and the medical sector using up that machinery.
WHY RADIOLOGICAL CONSULTATION IS NOT PREVALENT
"Due to improper infrastructure and poor economy, it becomes tough for the 3rd world countries to develop a good network and build upon connection for radiological Consultation."
Radiological Consultation has yet to embark its impacts in underdeveloped countries and is not prevalent. This is one of the major setbacks that come along with radiological consultation. Due to improper infrastructure and poor economy, it becomes tough for the 3rd world countries to develop a good network and build upon connection for radiological Consultation. Furthermore, heavy equipment’s cost millions of dollars, which affects the economy, and most of the countries cannot sustain under the burden of collapsing economy. Lastly countries like Australia, where the incidence rate is quite high for cancers, radiological protection is essential to reduce cancer and other manifestations . Furthermore, one of the major drawbacks related to radiological consultation is government policies that are not being abided by all the hospitals and health care units which can have a deleterious effect on the society as well as the environment. To finish off, all this requires trained professionals and good doctors who are not present worldwide. Hence, it is challenging for the underdeveloped countries to access all these facilities, which results in deadly diseases and deaths that cannot be treated like spread of Ebola Virus and even High grade cancers which are yet to be cured.
"Related authorities, government, and doctors must work with regards to radiological consultation to provide the medical sector with this tool and also help the natives with this brilliant facility."
To conclude, it must be kept in mind that radiological consultation has its pros and cons and with developments being made all over the world, it has a vital part to play. Related authorities, government, and doctors must work with regards to radiological consultation to provide the medical sector with this tool and also help the natives with this brilliant facility. Further advancements should be made in this field with regards to improvement in MRI and CT scans results. Furthermore online CT scan and MRI should be conducted through virtual 3D modeling. This can really help the medical sector grow and develop.
