REVIEW
C Westbrook
RATIONALE: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) practitioners are traditionally radiographers who learn MRI experientially. This review opens the debate on whether this is the best way of learning MRI. It was conducted as part of a study exploring the value of direct-entry into MRI via a specialized undergraduate degree without first qualifying as a radiographer. METHOD: A narrative literature review using the search terms MRI, radiography education and specialist education (healthcare, radiography)...

PURPOSE: To establish a picture of clinical education models within radiography programmes across Europe by surveying higher education institutions registered as affiliate members of the European Federation of Radiography Societies (EFRS). METHOD: An online survey was developed to ascertain data on: practical training, supervisory arrangements, placement logistics, quality assurance processes, and the assessment of clinical competencies. Responses were identifiable in terms of educational institution and country...

REVIEW
P Bain, A Wareing, I Henderson
BACKGROUND: Peer-assisted learning provides a means through which individuals can learn from one another through a reciprocal process. Radiographic image interpretation skills are fundamental to both diagnostic radiography students and medical students due to their shared role in preliminary evaluation of conventional radiographic images. Medical students on graduation, may not be well prepared to carry out image interpretation, since evidence suggests that they perform less well than radiographers in e...

REVIEW
A Wareing, C Buissink, D Harper, M Gellert Olesen, M Soto, S Braico, P Van Laer, I Gremion, L Rainford
OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to complete a collaborative review of Radiography continuing professional development (CPD) research material to support the production of European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) CPD recommendations. A meta-ethnography approach to literature review was applied focussing upon commonalities rather than discrepancies between research outcomes. This facilitated exploration of context across the geographical region of Europe with national variations in CPD governance...

REVIEW
J St John-Matthews, M J Wallace, L Robinson
OBJECTIVES: To describe and review the Delphi technique as a tool for radiographers engaged in mixed-methods research whereby agreement is required on the proficiencies needed by educational programmes for pre- and post- registration radiographers. This is achieved through a description offering a brief history of the technique. Through a literature search, radiography education research using this technique is identified. A protocol for a research project using the technique is presented...

INTRODUCTION: Academia is one area of practice in which radiographers can specialise; they compile approximately 2% of the total radiography profession in the UK, but are highly influential and essential for the education and development of the workforce in addition to undertaking research. However, the academic environment is very different to clinical practice and a period of transition is required. METHODS: Data were collated to explore the age and retirement profile of the academic radiography workforce in the UK; to understand the research time allocated to this workforce; the time required to develop a clinical radiographer into an academic and the mentorship and succession planning provisions nationally...

C Westbrook
RATIONALE: The aim of this study was to discover whether a specialised undergraduate degree in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a better way of educating MRI practitioners than experiential methods, and how necessary it is to first qualify as a radiographer to practice. This study compared the knowledge between individuals who qualify as a radiographer and then only learn MRI experientially (experiential practitioners), to those who learn only via a specialised undergraduate degree in MRI and enter practice directly without first qualifying as a radiographer (graduate practitioners)...

AIM: It is essential that all health professionals who come into contact with patients with terminal diagnoses are equipped to effectively and competently provide end of life care. This study aims to investigate the manner in which Higher Education Institutions address this requirement with their programmes of pre-registration therapeutic radiography education. METHOD: A structured survey was administered electronically to all UK universities with responsibility for therapeutic radiography education...

AIM: To evaluate the learning experience of a level 5 (year 2) student cohort within a research-informed teaching (RiT) activity and to map findings against learning outcomes and level descriptors using constructive alignment. METHOD: An online questionnaire was used to explore the level 5 student experience of a Research-informed Teaching (RiT) activity. Responses were retrospectively mapped against Framework for Higher Education Qualifications (FHEQ) level descriptors for level 5 using constructive alignment...

PURPOSE: To explore perceptions of professionalism amongst Estonian radiography students in order to identify their understandings of professionalism, the factors that influence the development of their understandings and those skills required to achieve professionalism. METHODS: A qualitative study using a semi-structured focus group approach involved four main questions: 1. What does the word professionalism mean to you? 2. What does the word unprofessionalism mean to you? 3...

INTRODUCTION: Recent years have seen significant changes in the way medical imaging services are delivered, rapid changes in technology and big increases in the number and ranges of examinations undertaken. Given these changes the study aimed to critically evaluate the fitness for purpose of newly qualified diagnostic radiography. METHOD: The study employed a grounded theory approach to analyse the interviews of 20 radiology managers from a range of medical imaging providers across the UK...

A Sá Pinto, V M Alves, A Oliveira, R H Castro, J G Pereira
Paget Disease of the bone is a metabolic disorder which leads to a profound alteration of the bone's architecture. It may be asymptomatic and, since its radiological features mimic those of bone metastases, may present a diagnostic dilemma during the evaluation of a cancer patient. We illustrate an uncommon monostotic form of the disease, affecting solely the scapula, diagnosed during the staging of a lung cancer patient.

BACKGROUND: Acromioclavicular joint dislocation can be more complex than it first appears. The presented case had an unusual combination of injuries to the superior shoulder suspensory complex, which yielded some interesting learning points. CASE SUMMARY: The injuries were sustained after a fall from a push bike and included acromioclavicular dislocation with coracoid process, clavicle and acromion process fractures. These were identified on the initial X-ray examination, which was followed by computed tomography for surgical planning...

R Santos, P A S Armada-da-Silva
INTRODUCTION: Muscle thickness (MT) and muscle echo-intensity (EI) allow the study of skeletal muscle adaptive changes with ultrasound. This study investigates the intra- and inter-session reliability and agreement of MT and EI measurements for each of the four heads of the quadriceps femoris in transverse and longitudinal scans, using two sizes for the region of interest (ROI); EI measurements only. METHODS: Three B-mode images from two views were acquired from each head of quadriceps femoris from twenty participants (10 females) in two sessions, 7 days apart...
