Although there has been research conducted for nearly 40 years, the number of patients who did not attend (DNA) their scheduled clinical appointments is on the increase and a worldwide problem. While reasons and effects of DNA may differ between hospital departments, different factors which predispose DNAs also vary from one setting to another. This paper’s interest is in the Radiology department. Despite the importance of radiology procedures in supporting diagnosis, management and prediction of diseases, research related to DNA for Radiology Departments (RD) is limited. This research aims to understand the relationship between previously identified factors and models to RD procedures and also report its initial research findings. Suggestions on new models, which will incorporate these findings in order to reduce DNA and Lack of Preparation (LOP) at RD, will be discussed.
