Abstract

Radiographers have been providing reporting solutions for a number of years. Given the persistent radiologist vacancies and the increased demand on imaging services, the utilisation of reporting radiographers is widespread across England. Capacity and demand issues may lead to reporting boundaries being extended. The aim was to generate an updated appraisal of participants' scopes of practice in the West Midlands of region of England.
