Introduction

Radiology symbolizes a branch of medicine that deals with radiant energy in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. It has two broad areas- diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology whereas; oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

Journal of Radiology and Oncology makes an effort to create a combined podium for authors to publish ... Readmore
