What is a forensic radiographer

forensic radiographers word jumble

How would you define a forensic radiographer? 

i looked around and i could not find a short definitive definition online or in the literature. it is important as a group of professions that we can provide a definition for ourselves. 

if you look for a definition of a radiographer you can find 5 or 6 different definitions quite easily. 

so how would you describe a forensic radiographer, do they need to have a port graduate education? specific training? would you differentiate between pediatric specialists / mass fatalities experts / DVI etc. should the undertaken image interpretation as well as image production? 

go to the forum and write up your definition - let us know your thoughts on how we could definite ourselves.
