In recent years, ethnography has become a methodology of choice for exploring radiographic practices. This article adds to the existing evidence base by providing detailed methodological accounts of two experienced researchers. It aims to provide a critical methodological lens to prospective researchers who may also use ethnography as their methodology of choice. The author's reflect on their experiences of utilising ethnography as a methodological approach. Here, accounts of the original tools aligned to undertaking ethnographic research in radiography are discussed and how these can be used to uncover original phenomena. The article identifies the researchers' own positionality and reflexivity as researchers and how this impacted on data collection. In short, this article provides a detailed account of undertaking ethnography as a methodological approach within diagnostic radiography. The experiences documented can provide prospective researchers an insight of the researchers' position within the fieldwork.
