Clinical radiology

The Faculty of Clinical Radiology is working to promote the specialty on a wide platform of activities, setting standards for entry to, and practice in, clinical radiology, and leading and supporting clinical radiologists during their careers.

These key principles, approved by PSSB and Faculty Board, are to be used as a framework for the activities of the Faculty and specifically in relation to the development of advice and guidance as regards the work of the PSSB. The Faculty Board will review the principles in two years’ time. This work is developed by and with members and Fellows of the RCR and close collaborative working with other professional bodies and the public and patients.
