Bringing together senior radiologists and medical imaging technologists from different countries, the board uses their combined and shared expertise to develop knowledge-based advice on strategies for the development of diagnostic X-ray.
Founded in 2020, the Radiology Advisory Board has a mission to investigate the role of X-ray imaging as a diagnostic tool, and the potential strategies. Jeroen Cant, Research Team Lead R&D, Radiology Division at Agfa, explains, “The Radiology Advisory Board offers a forum where senior radiologists and technicians can discuss and share the expertise essential for fostering growth and advancing the field of X-ray imaging. It enables a collaborative space that uses its members’ collective wisdom to formulate advice on strategies and roadmaps for the future.”
“The future of X-ray modality in Radiology” is the first opinion paper created by the board. It covers six transformation areas that the board considers crucial for the future of X-ray imaging. As the opinion paper highlights, the healthcare ecosystem in which X-ray operates is transforming drastically, and X-ray as an affordable and accessible imaging exam will play an indispensable role in this new ecosystem.
The opinion paper is available to download on Agfa’s website.
