Aim: The aim of this research was to find out the recognisability of radiographers’ profession among the third year’s students of various programmes at the University College of Health Care, University of Ljubljana and among the random passers-by. Methods: Semi-structured interview was used which is qualitative method of work. Two not randomly selected groups were used as a sample of research. One group included the students of the University College of Health Care and the other included random passers-by. Openended questions prepared in advance were used in the interview. The interviews were recorded and later accurately transcribed. Results and discussion: The study included 30 students, 21 women and 9 men with the average age of 22 years and 60 randomly selected passers-by, 30 women with the average age of 38.87 ± 12.65 years with 3rd to 7th level of education and 30 men with the average age of 36.73 ± 11.36 years with 2nd to 8th level of education. The study has shown that the level of recognisability of radiographers is larger among the students than among the random passers-by. Almost one third of the passers-by did not know who radiographers were and were not familiar with the nature of their work. However, the students were familiar with some radiological diagnostic-therapeutic procedures and with the role of radiographers because of professional affinity. According to their personal experience and general knowledge and education, the random passers-by placed radiographers and their range of activities into various professional fields. Regardless of their sex, age and level of education, the recognisability levels varied. Conclusion: Recognisability of radiographers in public is relatively low. It could be increased by handing out brochures, putting up posters and showing a short film, presenting the work of a radiographer in the media and in the waiting rooms of health institutions. However, the greatest contribution to increase their recognisability could be made by the radiographers themselves by establishing good communication and a genuine relationship with patients.
