Specializing in the field of diagnostic radiology, Dr. John Ferretti evaluates the results of medical images. These may include X-rays like CAT scans or MRIs. Diagnostic radiologists may specialize in evaluating the results of a specific imaging modality, or in the diagnosis of a specific disease, such as cancer. Medical imaging techniques are typically used to diagnose and evaluate conditions like cancer or a broken leg.
Vascular & interventional radiologists are trained to perform a wide variety of minimally-invasive, highly specific treatment techniques to treat a broad range of conditions. Typically, Dr. Ferretti will offer treatments that utilize instruments such as catheters, which are fed through the patient's blood vessels or other less-invasive paths to treat conditions or disorders without resorting to surgery.
