Abstract

This paper focuses on the legal implications in terms of duties and responsibilities for radiologists and radiologic technologists of independent pre-reading of mammograms by radiologic technologists, so patients could be discharged without being seen by a radiologist. Pre-reading could be effectuated when preconditions are met to perform reserved procedures by unauthorised professionals as stated in the Individual Health Care Professions (IHCP) Act. Furthermore, compliance with a protocol or code of conduct in combination with adequate training and supervision should be sufficient to disprove potential claims. For a wide implementation, pre-reading should be well-embedded in legal rules and should answer the professional standard of care.
