The time has come for Radiopaedia.org to become to radiographers what it already is for radiologists: the best online resource available. 

Having returned from ASMMIRT 2016 in Brisbane Australia, and having spoken to many many radiographers, a few things have become obvious. Firstly radiographers have different resource needs to radiologists, but are similarly poorly supported by open access educational material. Secondly although the material that radiographers require is different to that for radiologists, there is much overlap and much to learn from each other. 

It is also clear to me that our existing radiologist contributor and editorial group is not equipped to oversee the creation and moderation of radiographer centered content. We are putting together a group of radiographers from around the world, with input from existing radiologist editorial members, and over the coming months we will be beginning the process of identifying the sort of content we need to create. 

Therefore we reaching out to all radiographers in a call to action: join Radiopaedia.org and help us create the content you need. 

So, how do you start? Simple. Create a login if you don't have one already and become familiar with the site. 

You can already start improving existing radiographer content as well as crafting missing entries in line with our style guide for radiography articles

Over the coming months we will be approaching active radiographer contributors to join our editorial group and help steer Radiopaedia.org for years to come. 

Cheers, Frank
