Radiologist

(En español: Radiólogo)

Say: ray-dee-ah-lo-jist

When a kid gets an X-ray or a CT scan (two types of pictures taken of the inside of the body), those funny-looking pictures can be tough to understand. That's where radiologists come in. They are doctors who are specialists in reading and making sense of these pictures, and they help other doctors figure out what's going on inside you.
