World Radiography Day is celebrated on 8 November each year. The date marks the anniversary of the discovery of x-radiation by Wilhelm Roentgen in 1895.
Radiographers worldwide can use the day and the days around the date to promote radiography as a career, as a vital contribution to modern healthcare and as a chance to increase public awareness of diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy.
Louise Small, Consultant Radiographer at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital says:
“The day was well supported. Many patients enjoyed the image quiz and learning more about radiography.”
