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:
- the basic physics involved in the different imaging techniques
- image formation, pattern recognition and applications in the field of radiology
- current issues in a modern radiology department
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 bring insights from emerging imaging techniques.
- 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.
- More 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 four 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 BSc 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 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 radiology.
****** MSc Medical Imaging - online event ******
Tuesday 22nd January 2019
15:00 – 16:00PM GMT
SIGN UP TO OUR ONLINE WEBINAR EVENT: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/4252965247860319746
This webinar will give prospective students the opportunity to learn more about our medical imaging course content, the academic team involved in your teaching and our newly refreshed course structure - which from 2018 offers a range of optional modules that support different career paths. The webinar will explain the entry criteria, language requirements and applications process.
The webinar is particularly suited to professionals with a background in radiography and imaging, medical doctors and those interested in pursuing an academic research career. Applicants would be expected to have studied a biological/physical science, radiography, medicine or dentistry undergraduate degree or equivalent qualification.
By attending this webinar you will gain a good understanding of our course which aims to introduce diagnostic medical imaging and its application alongside the teaching of academic research skills. You will learn more about the new optional modules now available in forensic and paediatric radiography, professional work based learning and computer programming with MATLAB. You will also find out more about our academic team and their research interests and expertise and get the opportunity to ask questions to academic and admissions staff, as well as current students.
We look forward to you attending our online event.
