AI and progressive technology working party

Published: 20 July 2020 SoR

Expressions of interest are invited from Society of Radiographers’ members who would like to be considered for appointment to a new working party: Artificial Intelligence and Progressive Technology.

The tenure of the working group will be for approximately six months in the initial instance.

The working group is being established following the publication of our AI statementearlier this year. 

The broad purpose of the group is to represent the voices of the radiographic workforce in the development of technology, with aims to improve care in clinical imaging and radiotherapy. 

Further, the group aims to act as a point of contact and to provide clinical, educational and research related radiography advice and partnerships for stakeholders who seek to collectively develop healthcare technology.

It is intended that the working party will meet online, will have their own synapse group, and will:

  1. Collaborate proactively with stakeholders in the informatics and health and life sciences/medical technology fields, to aid the development of innovative, safe, effective and sustainable services.
  2. Consult with SoR members and provide updates.
  3. In partnership with patients and the public, promote and facilitate the research and development of radiography professional body standards for practice when using AI and new health technology.
  4. Work in cooperation with a range of organisations to promote and facilitate the implementation of AI and health technology once unequivocal benefits have been demonstrated.
  5. Contribute to the work of the College of Radiographers Education and Career Framework review.

Applications are invited from all sections of the radiography community and from all four countries in the United Kingdom.
