9 Need for repeat radiographs or further projections: a judgement is made from evaluations 1–8. If one or more factors have reduced the diagnostic quality to a point where a diagnosis cannot be made the image should be repeated. Would any additional projections enhance the diagnostic potential of the examination? For example, radial head projections for an elbow radiograph. If a repeat is required it may be appropriate to image only the area where there was uncertainty in the initial image. 10 Anatomical variations and pathological appearances: note anything unusual such as normal variants or pathology that may influence your future actions (see point 9) or aid diagnosis.

For example, if an old injury is seen it may be worth questioning the patient about their medical history.
Suggestions for Successful Image Interpretation 1 Gain an oral clinical history – Obtaining a clinical history from the patient can be especially helpful for the radiographer to produce the correct projections required to demonstrate the injury and a greater understanding of the area to check for injury. Modern Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) also allow the radiographer to convey any relevant clinical history to the person providing the final radiological report. 31 Key Aspects of Radiographic Practice 2 Produce high-quality radiographs – poor images are especially difficult to interpret and the ability to exclude fractures with confidence is diminished.
