Participate in research surveys







Research is one of the foundation stones of the Medical Radiations Profession. It underpins the high-quality care Medical Radiation Practitioners (MRPs) deliver on a daily basis. The ASMIRT Research Committee are committed to supporting and strengthening the conduct of research amongst all MRPs.  

By participating in research surveys, your input will be valuable to those not just at ASMIRT, but your profession too.

A Survey of Current Practice in Australia for the Selection of Receptor Angle in the Mediolatral Oblique View of the Breast in the Digital Era

You are invited to participate in a research study on the current practice in Australia for the selection of receptor angle in the mediolateral oblique (MLO) view of the breast and its impact on image quality.

The study is being conducted by Mrs Ruth Pape as part of her PhD candidature with the support from her supervisory team; Associate Professor Kelly Spuur and Dr Dana Al-Mousa from the School of Dentistry and Medical Sciences at the Charles Sturt University.

This research will explore radiographers’ knowledge and practise on the selection of the receptor angle for the MLO view through an online survey. We are interested in your knowledge and practices on how you select the receptor angle for the MLO view given the various body habitus (the thorax) to maximise image quality. We are also interested to understand how the body habitus (the thorax) impacts how much breast we see.

Prevalence and impact of workplace violence experienced by Australian diagnostic radiographers.


Curtin University are extending an invitation to participate in a questionnaire on workplace violence experienced by Australian diagnostic radiographers. This study is for all diagnostic radiographers, not only those who have experienced or witnessed workplace violence. This research project aims to be the first step in creating a knowledge base of workplace violence for all Australian diagnostic radiographers. We hope the results will contribute to informing future workplace safety.

Please feel free to forward this questionnaire to your fellow diagnostic radiography colleagues as we are keen for as many voices as possible to contribute to this important issue. It should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.

This study has been approved by Curtin Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC Approval Number 2023-0247). If you have any questions, please contact Krushi Shah (

International Perspectives on Person-Centred Care


The purpose of this research project is to define informed measures of patient centred care. The research team is inviting anyone who is over 18 years of age and is a service user of diagnostic radiography (feel free to share with family members), clinical radiographer/manager/educator or student in Australia.


How do professionals learn as they work?


Digital technologies are changing the way health professionals go about their work. But not much is known about this.

Our first project phase was to conduct a survey. Thank you to those who responded to our survey!

Now, we want to explore in more detail how you are learning as you work. 

We invite you to participate in a qualitative research study where you will reflect on how your work is changing due to digitalisation and how you are learning in this evolving context.

This will involve approx. 9 hours of your time over a 12-month period where you will complete a short survey, write reflections about your learning experiences, and be interviewed by one member of our research team.

Participants will receive a certificate, which may be used for recognition of professional development hours, and $150 as a token of thanks.
