The Royal College of Radiologists has produced an important briefing outlining the most pressing problem oncology departments across the UK are facing – a critical lack of capacity to deliver systemic anti-cancer therapies (SACT) to patients.
State of the wait
The ‘State of the wait’ is our analysis of diagnostic imaging and cancer treatment waiting times, showing how many radiologists it would take to clear the imaging backlog in England.
Improving PIR services in the UK
The Royal College of Radiologists has published an important report on paediatric interventional radiology (PIR). These specialists provide minimally invasive, high-quality treatment for cancer and many other diseases. PIR vastly improves the range, efficiency and quality of paediatric care.
