Scotland's top radiography team has been honoured by the Scottish Council of the Society of Radiographers.
The prize was given to NHS Ayrshire & Arran's radiographer-led reporting group, which was recognised for its innovative service in order to improve patient care.
Caroline Blower, a consultant radiographer, told the Society of Radiographers website that the award was "great news for the team" and shows what a great provision they provide.
"The advanced practice radiographers are former postgraduate students of Glasgow Caledonian University, and being named Scottish team of the year is further evidence of the success of the postgraduate programme.
"The team has had to work extremely hard to get to where we are today, but they have managed to establish a cost effective and quality service which benefits both patients and staff. The advanced practice radiographers have won the confidence of their radiographer colleagues, by showing them the learning opportunities available. And regular audits show a consistent accuracy of more than 98 per cent," she added.
