The U.K. Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) is highlighting milestones made in 2022 with its Quality Standard for Imaging (QSI) and planning for 2023.
The QSI's one-year anniversary was in October 2022. Shortly afterward, the 50th service was awarded QSI accreditation: the radiology department across the Northern Health and Social Care Trust in Northern Ireland. The RCR said QSI now has engagement from 86% of radiology services in the U.K., totaling nearly 200 services.
The college also said it will pilot QSI in Scotland in 2023 and that Wales is looking to move forward with QSI.
In England, the RCR is working with NHS England networks to grow the Quality Standard for Imaging Networks (QSIN) across the country. QSI network meetings have been hosted already for this purpose.
