Course content

This MSc is the only programme in the UK entirely focused on the imaging of cancer and has been purpose-built to meet a demand for expert researchers and clinicians. Medical imaging is central to the management of cancer, and this course has been designed to cover all aspects of imaging, from basic physics to image analysis. It also aims to give a solid grounding in current concepts of cancer biology and therapy as they apply ‘bench to bedside’.

Designed in close collaboration with a leading team of radiologists, medical physicists, oncologists and research specialists, the programme takes a theoretical and a practical approach to ensure it provides you with the specialist knowledge and skills required.

A key part of the programme is the study of real patient data and there are opportunities for project work in state-of-the-art clinical facilities for oncology imaging at both Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital. You can also undertake preclinical research in the University's PET (Positron Emission Tomography) Research Centre, a recently completed cutting edge facility that hosts the only research-dedicated cyclotron in the UK, along with extensive radiochemistry provision and preclinical PET-CT and SPECT-CT scanners.
