A talk on the ‘The Origins of the Reporting Radiographer’, looking at the changing roles and practice of the profession from the first x-ray technicians at the start of the 20th century, through two World Wars to the start of radiographer reporter training from 1994.
Christ Church was the first institution worldwide to offer postgraduate opportunities in Clinical Reporting, starting with a pilot programme by Keith Piper (Principal Lecturer) in 1994 accredited to teach NHS Radiographers to report x-ray images. This sector leading programme helped to facilitate and implement extended practice and consultant roles for radiographers, a model that made the UK a world leader in radiography reporting and helped developed a national and international reputation for Christ Church in this area of research and work.
