An Analysis of Radiographer Preliminary Image Evaluation – A Focus on Common False Negatives
Alexander-Bates I, Neep M, Davis B, Starkey D. (2021)
J Med Radiat Sci.

1.  Within this study, the overall accuracy of radiographers’ Preliminary Image Evaluation (PIE) was: *
1 point
2.  Of the upper extremity, which region demonstrated the highest number of incorrectly interpreted pathology? *
1 point
3.  Of the 60 false negative interpretations of the distal upper and lower extremities, how many contained multiple pathology, where the radiographer PIE only identified one pathology correctly? *
1 point
4.  What was suggested as a possible reason for the high number of incorrectly interpreted phalangeal pathologies? *
1 point
5.  Within the SBASS acronym, which part represents the continued search for pathology? *
1 point
