Quality Standard for Imaging (QSI) to undergo external review

The UK’s accreditation scheme for hospital radiology departments is set to undergo an external quality review

Published: 18 November 2020 SCoR

The Quality Standard for Imaging (QSI) is a joint initiative between the Royal College of Radiologists and the College of Radiographers. It sets national quality criteria for all diagnostic imaging provision and accreditation to the standard is recognised and recommended by NHS regulators and the Care Quality Commission to show good quality service.

The Quality Review Service has been appointed to review and update the QSI, and a broad range of imaging community stakeholders will also input into the review process. It is anticipated the revised standard will be published by mid-2021.
