08 Nov 20. World Radiography Day
World Radiography Day is celebrated at Edinburgh Imaging - our imaging facilities run well & efficiently because of our radiographers. We asked our radiographers what they enjoy most about their jobs & working at the Edinburgh Imaging Facilities.
Our radiographers scan volunteers & patients who are apart of imaging research projects, as well as NHS patients.
Radiographers play a vital role in welcoming patients & study volunteers to our facilities & at putting them at ease so that scans can be carried out in an informed & relaxed manner.
Our radiographers are the cornerstones of our facilities.
For World Radiography Day, we asked our radiographers about favourite aspects of their jobs & why they enjoy working at Edinburgh Imaging Facilities. Here are some of their responses:
- "Working as part of a big multidisciplinary team"
- "Adapting your skills for different patient groups to ensure every patient has an enjoyable experience"
- "The inspiring team of people I work with"
- "Feeling as if I am making a contribution to advancements in healthcare"
- "The great researchers & teams we get to work with"
- "Working with state of the art scanners & equipment"
- "Learning about different pathologies & techniques in both research & clinical environments"
The Edinburgh Imaging Academy also offers online education for MR trained radiographers - the IOFB Review course. The IOFB Review course is designed to enable MR radiographers to establish a programme & protocols for radiographer review of orbital radiographs for metallic intra-orbital foreign bodies (IOFBs); also to develop competency in metallic IOFB identification on orbital radiographs.
The IOFB Review course is endorsed by the Irish Institute of Radiography & Radiation Therapy.
