Statements and Guides

ARGANZ promotes evidence-based best practice in abdominal imaging and here registered website users can access helpful resources to aid scanning and reporting.

ARGANZ recognises that frequently new techniques emerge ahead of good evidence and sometimes a good test is underutilized due to either Medicare eligibility factors, or incomplete understanding by referring clinicians. To help with such issues, ARGANZ has recommendations for our members in terms of scanning and reporting and has compiled information to assist in discussions with clinicians about certain examinations. Note these are the opinions of ARGANZ and do not necessarily reflect the position of RANZCR. Please also see clinical guidelines for nationally endorsed guidelines.

ARGANZ recommends following national scanning and reporting guidelines in abdominal imaging where available.  Radiologists are encouraged to familiarise themselves with scanning, CPD and reporting statements in the documents listed below.
