To the Editor: I congratulate the Journal for publishing the article by Smith and Baird on the radiographer’s role in radiological reporting.1 It demonstrates the Journal’s objectivity by providing an opportunity to examine a health service model that, if carefully implemented and evaluated, may enhance outcomes in diagnostic imaging within a clinically useful timeframe.
