Professional Duty of Candour in Radiology

The RCR recognises that duty of candour can be particularly difficult within radiology. As such we have developed a formal document that aims to provide our members with guidance and real world examples on its implementation.

The working group carefully considered the balance of detail in this document. Once published it will be accompanied by further educational resources for the benefit of radiologists.

The College is seeking comments on the document. If you have comments on the draft please complete the comments form and send it to the Quality and Standards Operations Manager.

The deadline is Tuesday 1 February. 

 

Evidence-based indications for the use of PET-CT in the United Kingdom 2022  

The College is seeking comments on the draft document Evidence-based indications for the use of PET-CT in the United Kingdom 2022.

This guidance, which is an update to the version published in 2016, has been developed by an extensive working party, led by the Intercollegiate Standing Committee on Nuclear Medicine (ICSCNM). The guidance has undergone a significant update to reflect current evidence and research and includes an additional section covering paediatric indications. 

The proposal is that this new combined version will replace both the current version of the Evidence-based indications PET-CT document published in 2016, and the separate companion document ‘Guidelines for the use of PET-CT in children, Second edition’ (published in 2014) which was also due for review.

If you have any comments on this draft, please complete the comments form, and send it to the Professional Support and Standards Administrator.

The deadline is 5pm, Tuesday 8 February 2022
