In addition, there is often no provision of after-hours diagnostic reporting services in public hospitals, to an extent that the emergency physician is responsible for interpreting all radiographic images requested themselves. Emergency physicians, in this study, can be described as any medical doctor registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa and working in the emergency department as a registrar or consultant physician because there were no physicians specialized in emergency medicine working at the hospitals selected for this study.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/11189/8400||ISSN:||1939-8654||DOI:||https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jmir.2020.06.007|
