Reporting of fracture radiographs by radiographers : the impact of a training programme.
In order to determine what influence training would have on their ability to interpret skeletal radiographs from the accident and emergency department, a 6 months training programme was established for three radiographers in various aspects of the radiology of orthopaedics and skeletal trauma.
During the study the radiographers reported on radiographs from the accident and emergencydepartment and each month an evaluation of their accuracy was undertaken.
The overall radiographer error ratc for fracture detection (false positive and false negative) declined during the training period.
This was highly significant (p<0.001).
The sensitivity for fracture detection improved from 81.1% at the commencement of the trial to 95.9% at the end.
