Reporting radiographers

The objective of the Reporting Radiographer project is to help improve access to imaging services for people suspected to have, or affected by, cancer by transforming imaging service skill mix to make better use of the respective specialist knowledge and skills of clinical radiologists and diagnostic radiographers. 

The project aims to increase the number of radiographers contributing to image interpretation and reporting within clinical imaging teams. 

The benefits of upskilling radiographers in image interpretation and reporting is:

  • Frees up radiologists to support earlier diagnosis of cancer​
  • Supports transformation of imaging services​
  • Trusts reduce reliance on outsourcing​
  • Trusts develop existing workforce​
  • Increased radiographer retention
