Radiology forms a critical part of the investigation and treatment of vast numbers of patients, with over 100,000 radiology examinations carried out across the UK each day. While the demand for Radiology services increases year on year, the latest Royal College of Radiologists workforce census data reports a current shortfall of 1,876 radiologists (33%) which is projected to rise to 3,331 (43%) by 2024
