Royal College of Radiologists
The Royal College of Radiologists is the professional body responsible for the specialty of clinical oncology and clinical radiology throughout the United Kingdom. Its role is to advance the science and practice of radiology and oncology, further public education and set appropriate professional standards of practice. The College also sets and monitors the educational curriculum for those training to enter the profession. It is a registered charity in the United Kingdom (no. 211540). 
A series of bodies has represented practitioners of radiological medicine in the UK, starting in 1897 with the foundation of the Roentgen Society (named for the physicist Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen). Subsequently founded societies included the British Association of Radiologists (1934), the Society of Radiotherapists of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (1935) and the Faculty of Radiologists (1939).
In 1950 the first issue of the Clinical Radiology Journal was published by the Faculty of Radiologists, who were then granted a Royal Charter of incorporation in 1953. Professor Sir Brian Windeyer helped found and became President of the Faculty of Radiologists from 1949-52. A supplemental charter was given in 1975 to rename the Faculty as The Royal College of Radiologists. The College then published the first issue of the Clinical Oncology Journal in September 1989.
