Introduction: Radiographers have performed research since 1988 in Sweden. The amount of doctoral and licentiate dissertations written by registered diagnostic radiographers has increased considerably since 2000. How this new field of research was established and developed has facilitated understand of the boundaries that strengthen the professional evidence base. The aim of this dissertation review was to explore the nature and the current state of radiographic research, written by registered diagnostic radiographers in Sweden. Methods: Dissertations published between 1988 and 2017 were analysed both deductively and inductively with content analysis. Results: Radiographic research focused on structural factors, clinical radiography, radiographic technology and pedagogical approaches. The findings indicated a large interest in advancing patient information, wellbeing and care during examinations. The participants were predominantly clinical patients, followed by radiographers, adults/children and the general public. The most common study designs were descriptive with a trend towards interventional studies. Interviews and questionnaires were the most common data collection methods followed by clinical examinations and documents. Conclusion: The analyses demonstrate that the current radiographer research has its roots in clinical practice, focusing on pragmatic aspects and applied knowledge. The findings suggest that radiographer's dissertations meet the challenges of new technologies and working practise. If the knowledge is connected to the radiographic framework, radiography can be viewed as an independent discipline with its own philosophical base. When radiographers are encouraged to conduct research, evidence based knowledge increase which strengthens the profession. Radiography, as a scientific discipline is evolving in Sweden.
