Radiography is a profession that blends patient-facing care with advanced technologies to produce diagnostic images, requiring practitioners to operate with a diverse range of skills to provide the best patient experience and outcomes. It has traditionally been a profession that moves with the times and one that is an early and willing adopter of new and emerging technologies. The next innovations for radiology departments are likely to be due to the rise of AI.
