Radiology Across Borders Is delighted to be partnering with Diagnostic Imaging Pathways (DIP). DIP is an online suite of evidence-based and consensus-based imaging guidelines and an educational tool, developed in Western Australia with the aim guiding the appropriate choice of diagnostic imaging in clinical situations. It has established itself as an excellent portal for clinical decision making in radiology and we are delighted to be able to make this resource available to all our recipient nations through the RAB platform as well.
This valuable resource is now available via our website providing free, regularly updated and reviewed imaging guidelines, assessed by multidisciplinary teams and feature many different layers of information and teaching points to suit your imaging needs.
A special thank you to the founder Professor Richard Mendelson and chief editor Dr Ravinder Dhillon for making this partnership a reality.

What is it?
‘Diagnostic Imaging Pathways’ (www.imagingpathways.health.wa.gov.au) is an online suite of evidence-based and consensus -based imaging guidelines and an educational tool, developed in Western Australia with the aim of optimizing appropriate choices of diagnostic imaging (DI) in a wide variety of clinical scenarios. DIP is aimed at referrers to DI, imaging technologists, radiologists and medical students.
What are the aims of DIP?
Guidelines for referrers to DI are an essential part of ensuring the appropriate use of imaging, and a useful tool in the process of justification of imaging procedures.
DIP’s aims are to increase the appropriateness of DI by providing generic guidelines and education in multiple clinical scenarios. It has achieved acclaim both nationally in Australia, and internationally.
DIP is accredited by the UK National Institute for Care and Health Excellence (NICE) and complies with the Appraisal of Guidelines for Research & Evaluation (AGREE) II instrument methodology
