Radiology has evolved into an indispensable tool in the field of general surgery, playing a pivotal role in both diagnosis and intraoperative decision-making. This paper explores the multifaceted applications of radiology in general surgery, encompassing diagnostic imaging techniques, preoperative planning, real-time intraoperative guidance, and postoperative assessment. The review emphasizes the critical importance of radiological modalities, such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound, in enhancing the precision and safety of surgical interventions. By delving into these applications, we aim to provide a comprehensive understanding of the evolving role of radiology in modern general surgery.
