Research ‘Recipe Book’
From August 2012, radiology trainees will be required to undertake a research activity as part of their training. Research is recognised to be an important component of the curriculum. The College has produced a ‘Research Recipe Book’, designed to be of assistance to trainees undertaking their research projects. This resource will help guide a trainee through a research project from its inception to its conclusion. The individual guides provide useful information with references to further details where required. Trainees are not expected to undertake a whole project from start to finish but to participate in an existing project or to develop a hypothetical project. The aim of this practical piece of work is to aid a deep understanding of a particular aspect of research methodology.
With thanks to the Academic Committee of the RCR for the production of these guides.

Management of Incidental Findings Detected During Research Imaging
- A large group of interested bodies, including the RCR, the National Research Ethics Committee, other Royal Colleges, research imaging centres, patient groups, professional organisations and major research funding organisations met in July 2010 to debate the problem of incidental findings detected during imaging research and how these should be managed.
- Management of Incidental Findings Detected During Research Imaging details the decisions and recommendations made at the meeting and in subsequent discussions. It provides comprehensive background data on incidents, type, severity, approaches in other countries, summaries of discussions by other groups who have considered this problem and examples of information sheets used in some research centres.
