Radiology is defined as the specialty encompassing all aspects of medical imaging that yields information regarding anatomical, physiological and pathological status of disease. It includes those interventional techniques necessary for diagnosis, as well as minimally invasive therapy, which fall under the remit of departments of clinical radiology.
The Faculty of Radiologists of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland is the statutory body responsible for training of Radiologists and for certifying their competence for registration and hereby reaffirms that right.
It is a basic tenet of the training programme that the patient’s interest supersedes all other considerations, particularly self-interest, and that at all times the trainee acts with professionalism, integrity and an ethical principle of patient care. Effective communication skills are crucial to this process as well as an ability to act as part of a clinical care team.
