A neurologist is a specialist who diagnoses and treats conditions of the brain, spinal cord and nerves such as neurological disorders (Parkinson's disease and motor neurone disease), degenerative disorders that affect thinking ability (Alzheimer's disease), brain or spinal injuries, infections of the nervous systems (meningitis or brain abscesses), headaches and migraines, seizures and epilepsy, strokes and aneurysms (bleeding in the brain). Radiologists are able to understand and explain medical conditions through the medical imaging of the internal parts of a patient’s body. Most radiologists in Australia work in general radiology with diagnostic imaging, comprising X-ray, computerised tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound and nuclear medicine imaging techniques, to obtain images that are interpreted to assist in diagnosis.
