The mission of Radiology laboratory focuses on both research and education. It ensures the quality of the first and second cycle degree study programme implementation and produces competent, professional radiographers who can function effectively as members of the health care team. An important part of its mission is the development of radiologic technology as part of medical radiology through research, conducted on all educational levels. As ionising radiation presents a significant part of ionisation to which the population is exposed, the research objective is to define, design, and evaluate the impact of interventions to improve appropriate use of medical imaging by reducing its overuse, under-use and misuse. As we are aware that application of research findings is as important as the conduct of research itself, we try to communicate the research findings with the health care community at workshops and professional meetings and thus translate them into diverse applied settings.
