  • Abstract

    The main objective of this paper is to study the factors that affect the creation of appropriate conditions and trends in scientific training, lifelong learning and professional development of radiology technicians-radiographers, aiming to devise specialized training programs to meet the needs of each group. The research was based on questionnaires distributed to 130 technicians-radiographers who work in three representative hospitals, a public one, a private and one based on a University in the same health district. Data analysis has led to a number of conclusions related to age groups, gender, professional experience, general education level of the respondents and other factors. The main conclusion of the research is that there is virtually no real interest in additional scientific training because of several endogenous reasons mainly related to the education system and the lack of commercial incentives.
