Medical Imaging is an essential component of modern medicine and plays a key role in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of disease. This course is designed for recent graduates preparing for a career in medical imaging, medical students wishing to intercalate, healthcare professionals working as radiographers, sonographers, medical physicists, technologists and medics. Our Medical Imaging MSc covers:
Postgraduate Virtual Open Days – 30 November – 5 December
the scientific principles involved in the different imaging techniques and image formation,
applications in the field of radiology
current issues in a modern radiology department
From 30 November, we’ll be hosting a week of exciting live events. If you’re interested in studying a Masters or a research degree, this will be a great opportunity to find out how you can become a specialist in your subject and build your career.

Whilst not a clinical skills course, the teaching of technical aspects of imaging techniques is firmly grounded in their clinical usage. Many of our lecturers are at the forefront of research in their field and you’ll benefit from their expertise in the latest techniques and understanding.
We have a long history of providing medical imaging research and teaching in the application of the physical sciences to medicine. Our Medical Physics group was established in 1948 so we have a strong history of research and teaching in the field of medical imaging.
You’ll be taught by academics who are actively engaged in research and collaboration, and this is reflected in their teaching. Recently we have provided the academic lead in collaborative projects involving GlaxoSmithKline, Siemens, Philips Healthcare, Thales Angenieux, Kidney Research UK and Breast Cancer Now.
Our team of lecturers and research active academics will share their expertise with you through their teaching across a wide range of core and optional modules including: magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Ultrasound, X-ray computed tomography (CT), Radionuclide, paediatric radiography and forensic imaging.
We offer the widest choice of modules, making our courses appealing to both UK and international clinical radiographers, medics, medical students and non-clinical researchers and technicians. You have the opportunity to tailor your learning through our range of optional modules which are available for both full time and part time study.
We offer three medical imaging courses to suit your own learning needs. If your ambition is to further develop your knowledge about the theoretic principles underpinning the different modalities you use in a clinical setting, our postgraduate certificate or diploma may suit you. If you are particularly keen to develop a career in academia and research, our masters course is the ideal stepping stone to commencing a PhD at Leeds.
You may transfer from your original programme to another one, provided that you do this before you have completed the programme and before an award has been made. Part-time study is also an option.
For medical students, our intercalated MSc course provides a solid grounding in the physics involved in different imaging techniques and will enhance your imaging knowledge in preparation for your career in medicine. Intercalation on our MSc course will also provide you with advanced learning which develops the essential knowledge and research experience that will be particularly useful if you are keen to pursue a career in many areas of medicine, not just radiology. Students wanting to intercalate after year 4 of the MBChB in Leeds should undertake their medical elective in the summer before starting the MSc to avoid clashes with the MSc research project and their elective.
The medical imaging webinar will give you the chance to find out about the course in general and in learn about how the course will be run next year. Like many universities, we have adapted our courses and campus to make sure your safety is our top priority. If you have any questions such as whether the MSc Medical Imaging is the right course for you, or if the coming academic year is the right time to come, then this webinar will allow you to get answers.
During the webinar, the Programme Lead, Dr Andrew Davies, will detail the plans for the course delivery, and introduce the modules that you can chose to make up your course.
