Course content

The MSc by Research in Medical Imaging, provides a part-time route to achieving a masters qualification for radiographers and others working within the field of medical imaging.

The medical imaging staff with the University of Exeter holds significant experience and expertise in the musculo-skeletal and imaging research. The University has an extensive range of imaging equipment including computed radiography, which is soon to be upgraded to digital radiography equipment, an ultrasound scanner, quantitative ultrasound scanners, a magnetic resonance scanner and a dual energy x-ray absorptiometry scanner.

With many years experience of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, we are now developing complementary expertise in the development and application of optical imaging and vibrational spectroscopy.

Activities of the Biomedical Physics research group range from studies of the cell membrane, through investigations of the ways in which cells sense and respond to physical signals, to integrative studies on touch perception. This work helps us to understand processes that may be involved in diseases ranging from diabetes to cancer, and hence to develop novel therapeutic approaches.
