- Medical Imaging is fundamental in the delivery of modern medicine and is an essential part of many NHS treatments being delivered today. Clinical Radiologists use medical imaging techniques to investigate, diagnose, and monitor diseases and injuries while interventional radiologists use imaging-guided techniques to carry out minimally invasive surgery that have positive outcomes for patient experience, discharge time and reducing fatalities.
The Royal College of Radiologists recently published the Policy Priorities for Clinical Radiology 2021-2026 report, the report identified 3 key areas of scale-up needed to ensure the highest standard of patient treatment is delivered, these areas include:
Maximising the radiology workforce.
Providing the adequate tools to enhance patient care.
And supporting new models of delivery.
Our upcoming event will provide the NHS Imaging community with a timely platform to listen, learn and share insights based on the new models of care and delivery proposed by the sectors leading policymakers.
