The aim of this study was to compare the observer performance of a cohort of radiographers in reporting CT sinus and facial bone investigations against a reference standard and alternative comparator of summary data from peer-reviewed literature. A literature search was performed to identify an additional alternative comparison reference standard from studies reporting observer performance data in CT sinus and facial bone investigations of both trauma and sinus pathology target conditions. The cohort of radiographer sensitivity was The mean radiographer AUC was 0. The summary reported data of the alternative literature reference standard comparator were AUC 0. The results suggest that this cohort of radiographers at the end of a period training in CT sinus and facial bones are able to clinically report comparably high standards.
