Royal College of Radiologists

The College was granted a Royal Charter in 1953, and, in 1979, became The Royal College of Radiologists, comprised of clinical radiologists and clinical oncologists. Clinical radiologists provide diagnostic imaging and, increasingly, interventional radiology, and are usually hospital based. Clinical oncologists are medical specialists skilled in non-surgical forms of cancer treatment, utilising radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, radioactive isotopes and other special techniques to treat patients with cancer.

The College traces its roots back to the Röntgen Society founded in 1897, which had loose ties with medicine. In the 1930s some radiologists established The British Association of Radiologists, while others formed The Society of Radiotherapists, to treat cancer with x-rays and radium; in 1939, the two merged to form The Faculty of Radiologists.
