The Royal College of Radiologists exists to advance the science and practice of clinical radiology.

Through its Faculty of Clinical Radiology Professional Support and Standards Board it undertakes to produce standards or documents to provide guidance to individuals involved in the delivery of radiological services with the aim of defining good practice, advancing practice, and improving services for the benefit of patients.

The standards documents cover a wide range of topics. All have undergone an extensive consultation process to ensure broad consensus, underpinned by published evidence, where applicable. Each is subject to review four years after publication or earlier, as appropriate. The standards are not regulations governing practice but attempt to define the aspects of radiological services and care which promote the provision of high-quality service to patients.
