Message for World Radiography Day

Dr Fozy Peer ISRRT President

On behalf of the ISRRT - It gives me great pleasure to congratulate you all on the event of World Radiography Day (WRD). WRD is celebrated globally as a tribute to the Nobel Peace Prize-winning founder of x-rays, Professor Wilhelm Rontgen whose discovery on 8 November 1895 revolutionised medical diagnosis.

Radiographers all over the world hold this important day close to their hearts and this commemoration has become a global rallying call for all of us to ensure that radiographic imaging and radiation treatment continue to strive to achieve uncompromising service excellence. The ISRRT, as the voice of radiation medicine technology throughout the world, has adopted as the international theme this year; Radiography … Advancing Imaging and Healing Globally.

We encourage our member societies internationally to adopt this theme during the range of different activities that they provide to both members of the public and other healthcare professionals in order to maintain and improve the standards of delivery and the practice of medical imaging and radiation therapy.

 

WHO congratulates radiologists, radiographers and medical physicists

On behalf of WHO we wish to congratulate all medical physicists, radiologists and radiographers and encourages health professionals using radiation in health care to continually improve safety and quality, to foster excellence in health care services.
WHO has uploaded two messages for the International  World Radiography Day  (8th November 2014).

ISRRT Announcements:


 ISRRT Research Award 2014
Theme: The Role of the Radiographer in the Justification of Medical Exposure”

The aim of the ISRRT Research Fund is to promote research that helps improve the standards of delivery and practice of medical imaging and radiotherapy. The ISRRT Research Fund was set up in 2009 and a research proposal was funded the first time in 2010. We are now inviting applications for a research grant in 2014 from members of Societies who are ISRRT members and from ISRRT Associate members. The grant is £2500 for 1-year projects and £5000 for 2-year projects.
Full details of the Research Fund Guidelines and application form can be obtained from the ISRRT CEO: isrrt.yule@btinternet.com

The closing date for submission of grant application is 30 November 2014

  • Image Interpretation: position statement agreed by the ISRRT Council June 2014

    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.”
