    Summary

    This document is as a result of collaboration between the Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR) and the British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS). Originally published in December 2015 it will be reviewed every year to maintain currency. This is ‘Revision 1’ and is dated December 2016. These Guidelines are not designed to be prescriptive but to inform good ultrasound  practice, they  are a further development of the former United Kingdom Association of Sonographers (UKAS) Guidelines. They also provide a valuable source of information for many ultrasound related topics with active weblinks to relevant organisations and advice.

    Summary

    The Clinical Imaging Board (CIB) has previously issued a statement in recognition of the importance of correct patient identification when undertaking diagnostic imaging procedures utilising ionising radiation. This has been adapted to include advice published by the British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS) so as to apply to medical ultrasound examinations. These examinations do not involve the use of ionising radiation but the good practice principles of safe patient identification are the same. This guidance is endorsed by BMUS.

    Summary

    The Clinical Imaging Board (CIB) has previously issued a statement in recognition of the importance of correct patient identification when undertaking diagnostic imaging procedures utilising ionising radiation. .This statement has been adapted as follows to apply to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations. MRI uses a combination of a very strong static magnetic field, time-varying magnetic fields and radiofrequency pulses to create the patient images. These examinations do not involve the use of ionising radiation; however, there are very serious risks to the patient associated with MRI, particularly for those patients with implanted medical devices. Thus the principles of safe patient identification are the same.

    Summary

    CoR is pleased to publish the 2013-2014 Approval and Accreditation Board (AAB) Report. The purpose of the report is to draw together the activity of the AAB by including data on the approval and accreditation work of the Board. Data and statistics from the Education Institution Annual Monitoring Survey constitute a significant proportion of the report. These statistics provide a mainly quantitative overview of the position of radiographic education within the UK. This will enable education providers, including providers of clinical imaging and radiotherapy services, to compare their own data with national data and to extract key areas where they may have further work to do or areas where they can share their good practice with the rest of the radiographic community.
