About - Overview



Welcome to SORSA

The Society of Radiographers of South Africa is a non-profit professional association with voluntary membership. It represents radiographers in all four radiographic categories viz Diagnostic, Nuclear Medicine, Radiotherapy and Ultrasound. It is open to all radiographers, student radiographers and supplementary diagnostic radiographers who are registerable with the HPCSA, as well as organisations and institutions with a direct interest in the profession of radiography. The Society is regionally represented in all the large centres in South Africa and is a member country of the International Society of Radiographers and Radiological Technologists (ISRRT).

The aims of the Society are mainly to represent radiographers. The Society actively encourages continuing professional advancement of radiographers, and to this end it regularly holds CPD activities and congresses which are open to all interested persons. The Society is the only professional radiographic association in Africa which publishes a professional journal with circulation locally as well as in neighbouring countries and overseas.

The Society is an officially recognised association that represents the interests of both the profession and its members and therefore has a responsibility to its members to provide input on all radiographic matters at highest levels.

The Society has, as one of its aims, the purpose of providing access to continuing education opportunities for its members. CPD activities and congresses, as well as the publication of The South African Radiographer and a variety of updates / workshops and open meetings, provide these opportunities both at provincial level and nationally.  These CPD activities may be hosted in-person and virtually.  It has now recognised that more formal continuing education activities are necessary. In this way, the Society can take a more active role in striving to improve technical and ethical standards within the profession, while at the same time offering its members the opportunity for both personal and professional growth.
