Image Interpretation: position statement agreed by the ISRRT Council June 2014
“The ISRRT affirms that image interpretation is within the scope of practice of radiographers and radiological technologists, subject to their demonstration of appropriate educational preparation leading to clinical competency to carry out the task as trained and where image interpretation is permissible by regulation or law.
Furthermore, the ISRRT Board promotes the image interpretation role of radiographers and radiological technologists in the delivery of safe, cost-effective and high quality diagnostic imaging services.”
