The South African Radiographer
THE OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF THE SOCIETY OF RADIOGRAPHERS

The South African Radiographer’s (SARad) primary purpose is to disseminate research results which support high level learning, teaching and research in all aspects of diagnostic radiography, sonography, nuclear medicine, and radiation therapy and oncology.

Focus and Scope
The South African Radiographer’s (SARad) primary purpose is to disseminate research results which support high level learning, teaching and research in all aspects of diagnostic radiography, sonography, nuclear medicine, and radiation therapy and oncology.

SARad publishes peer reviewed research findings, original review and opinion articles, and case reports on all aspects of:
(i) diagnostic imaging including computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging,
(ii) sonography,
(iii) nuclear medicine,
(iv) radiation therapy and oncology,
(v) education relevant to radiography.
It provides a forum for exchange of ideas on clinical, scientific and professional aspects of radiography.
