Abstract

The RCR recognises that information technology (IT) can greatly improve the patient pathway in clinical radiology, particularly in terms of patient experience and efficiency. The use of electronic requesting is one such area and we would encourage all organisations involved in the requesting of radiology investigations to invest in appropriate technology. However, there are many pitfalls in the delivery of a service and, therefore, we hope you will find this guidance useful in ensuring you obtain the major benefits from this innovation.
