Abstract

Literature review indicates high levels of error within radiology. The aetiology of radiological error is multi-factorial. While individuals have a duty to progressively improve their performance, the experience of safety cultures in other high-risk human activities has shown that a system approach of root cause analysis is the method required to reduce error significantly.
