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 course covers:
the basic physics involved in the different imaging techniques and image formation,
pattern recognition and applications in the field of radiology
current issues in a modern radiology department
Develop and connect
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.
You can also study this subject at a Masters or Postgraduate Certificate level.
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.
