Quality Standard for Imaging Networks (QSIN)

The Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) and The College of Radiographers (CoR) have worked together to develop the Quality Standard for Imaging Networks (QSIN).

The QSIN is written to stand alone; and emerging or nascent networks can use it to help develop their governance and quality improvement processes.

All processes developed for quality improvement should be embedded and in routine use to achieve a culture of quality. While led from the top of the service, a culture of quality is everyone’s responsibility. These standards are designed to encourage all services to become part of an imaging network, with the benefits of mutual support and learning this brings.

Although these imaging network quality standards have been published independently from the Quality Standard for Imaging (QSI), it is envisaged that, as imaging networks develop, the QSIN will be an integral part of the QSI.

Quality Standard for Imaging (QSI)

The standards were officially launched at The UK Imaging and Oncology Congress (UKIO) in July 2022.

In July 2023 we announced the launch of the version 1.1 of the Quality Standards for Imaging Networks – with updated notes and a new standard IN-301 for Equipment and Procurement. To complement the update, we have also launched a Development and Support Tool Networks. This is an excel spreadsheet to help networks carry out a full gap analysis and organise the work to complete QSIN.

We welcome any feedback on these standards – please email .
