Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy


In 2013, the Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences (JMRS) was created by the merging of The Radiographer, the Journal of the Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (ASMIRT) (formerly the Australia Institute of Radiography (AIR)), and Shadows, the Journal of the New Zealand Institute of Medical Radiation Technology (NZIMRT).

JMRS is an international and multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed Journal that accepts manuscripts related to medical imaging/diagnostic radiography, radiation therapy, nuclear medicine, medical ultrasound/sonography, and the complementary disciplines of medical physics, radiology, radiation oncology, nursing, psychology, and sociology. JMRS is fully open-access and is available online.


Maximise your CPD by reading selected articles in the latest edition of JMRS then answer the questions in the Continuing Professional Development section. Please remember to self-claim your CPD and retain your supporting evidence.

This content was created in conjunction with the Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (ASMIRT) CPD program.
