Our Course

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.
