The president of the Society of Radiographers has praised the work of NHS Grampian.
Some procedures carried out at the facility are a first for a Scottish radiotherapy centre.
Gill Hodges said she was “amazed and delighted at the amount of advanced practice going on” at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary following a visit.
She was invited to the radiotherapy centre and to meet trainee consultant radiographer Jacqueline Ogg.
Gill said: “The amount of advanced practice is amazing.
“In some instances ARI is the only centre in Scotland delivering some of these services.”
