Amedu, C. ORCID: 0000-0002-8168-885X & Ohene-Botwe, B. ORCID: 0000-0002-0477-640X (2024). Harnessing the Benefits of ChatGPT for Radiography Education: A Discussion Paper. Radiography, 30(1), pp. 209-216. doi: 10.1016/j.radi.2023.11.009


Objective: Radiography education is pivotal in training skilled radiographers for diagnostic imaging and therapeutic applications. With technological advancements, interest in innovative educational tools to enhance traditional teaching methods is growing. This discussion paper explores the possibility of the integration of ChatGPT, a cutting-edge conversational AI language model, into radiography education.

Key findings: We report that ChatGPT offers interactive learning opportunities that can facilitate learning. It also provides self-paced learning, revision platforms, and supports educators in scenario creation, assessment development, group collaboration, and professional and research activities. Despite these benefits, it is important to carefully consider issues related to academic integrity and privacy, along with the opportunities and challenges presented by this new technology in radiography education.

Conclusion: This paper highlights some of the prospects and limitations of the potential applications of ChatGPT in radiography education, underscoring the benefits for both students and educators. However, its implementation must be considered thoughtfully and ethically, taking into account its strengths and limitations.

Implications for Practice: Integrating ChatGPT in radiography education has the potential to improve radiography education by improving digital literacy and graduate outcomes of students while streamlining the preparation process for educators. However, ethical implementation is vital for optimal outcomes.
