Quality of the radiological referral : - Factors that affect the process of justification (English)
Abstract [sv]

Introduktion: Alla röntgenundersökningar med joniserande strålning ska vara berättigade och optimerade. Detta kräver röntgenremisser av god kvalité. Syfte: Syftet med litteraturöversikten var att beskriva faktorer som har påverkan i röntgenremissens berättigandeprocess. Metod: En allmän litteraturöversikt baserad på kvantitativa studier som kvalitetsgranskats. Resultat: Resultatet presenteras i fem kategorier: berättigade och oberättigade röntgenundersökningar, avsaknad av klinisk information, användning av riktlinjer, införande av intervention och röntgenremissens utformning. Slutsats: Röntgenremissers kvalité har betydelse i berättigandeprocessen. Antalet oberättigade röntgenundersökningar minskar genom ökad kunskap vilket gör utbildning för remitterande läkare till en nyckelfaktor. Detta leder till säkrare sjukvård där patienter inte utsätts för onödig joniserande strålning.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: All x-ray examinations with ionizing radiation must be justified and optimized. This requires radiology referral of good quality. Aim: The aim of the study was to describe factors that affect the process of justification in radiology referrals. Method: A general literature review based on quantitative studies that have been verified based on its credibility. Result: The results are presented in five categories: justified and unjustified x-ray examinations, lack of clinical information, use of guidelines, introduction of intervention and the design of the radiology referral. Conclusion: The quality of the radiology referral has significance in the process of justification. Number of unjustified x-ray examinations are reduced through increased knowledge, which makes education for referring physicians a keyfactor. This leads to safer healthcare where patients are not exposed to unnecessary ionizing radiation.
