Sammanfattning

The results indicate significant trends and major challenges that have influenced the radiography profession in Sweden over the last four decades. The technological developments, control of radiation doses, work-shifting and opportunities for career advancement have had a positive influence on the radiography profession, while shortage of radiographers has affected it in a negative way in that there has been limited time to engage in activities that promote such advancement. This might jeopardise radiographers' ability to provide the best possible safe care for patients. Specialisation in practise leads to expert knowledge, which may have an influence on career advancement, however, a specialist education regulated by the law can be a prerequisite for further development of the radiography profession. Radiographers must step forward, become more visible as a profession and not remain in the shadow of other professionals.
