Radiation safety: questions patients can ask
There's a new focus on radiation dose monitoring. Here's how new technology can help clinicians, and how patients can help themselves.
Why we need teleradiologists and hospital-based consultants
Teleradiology is a key part of modern imaging practice. Remote reporting is vital to support busy hospitals and works to complement, rather than replace, on-site clinicians, says The Royal College of Radiologists.
Minimally invasive interventional radiology advances cancer care
Interventional radiology offers cancer patients and alternative form of treatment that may reduce risk, pain and recovery time.
Artificially intelligent breast cancer screening
Within a few years artificial intelligence may improve the detection of breast cancer and reduce the workload for radiologists.
From art to science: the evolution of imaging
Six ways that medical imaging must evolve in order to move forward into an ethical, safe, qualitative, and value-based future.
Virtual networks offer gold-standard diagnostic care
Technology is raising the health stakes in diagnostic care, saving time and lives, says teleradiology expert, Dr David Wilson.
Revolutionary radiotherapy system personalises cancer treatment
Safer, more effective cancer treatment could be on the horizon as a new radiotherapy system targets tumours with greater precision.
DMS delivers safer scanning and closer co-operation
Dose Management Software provides robust, timely data enabling collaboration between clinical and technical teams to give a better service and comply with tighter regulations.
The future of imaging: an issue that affects us all
As the pace of technological advancements continues to increase, so does the opportunity to improve the quality of medical imaging to help transform healthcare.
Artificial intelligence could save NHS money and time
Progress in artificial intelligence is radically changing medical imaging techniques, easing the burden on over-stretched staff and speeding up diagnosis in the process.
Medical imaging: balancing benefits against risks
Medical imaging brings many benefits, but some techniques also involve using radiation. What are the real risks to patients, staff and the public?
UK-qualified radiologists go global
Teleradiology has changed the way radiologists can work. UK-qualified radiologists can work flexibly from different offices around the UK and even across the world.
Why it's vital to choose the right kind of imaging
Choosing the right imaging method is vital in improving patient care, reducing pressure on scarce radiology resources and saving the NHS money.
Joined up thinking: the future of radiology training
Competence and technology is revolutionising radiology and more standardised cross-training is needed to keep pace and ensure that patients reap the benefits.
Artificial intelligence could transform radiology
Artificial intelligence and big data approaches could tackle imaging backlogs and aid personalised medicine by making science fiction a reality.
Radiologist calls for more radiographer reporting
More radiographer reporting could help solve the long-established problems of increasing demand on radiology departments, says radiologist.
Three ways the NHS can save on imaging equipment
Longer-term thinking and clever buying policies can help NHS trusts acquire the latest imaging equipment while potentially reducing outlay.
Taking precautions in imaging: protect and store safely
When you have an X-ray you are exposed to a minimal amount of radiation but spare a thought for people who work in imaging departments who can be exposed to damaging radiation from X-ray equipment all day long.
Transforming radiology with co-operation
NHS Glasgow and Clyde is using partnership and co-operation to transform its radiology service with a teleradiology model tailored to its own needs.
