Course content

This MSc is designed not only for recent graduates preparing for a career in medical imaging, but also for professionals already working in the field.

The MSc Medical Imaging aims to cover all aspects of medical imaging, from the basic physics involved, in different modalities, image formation, pattern recognition and applications within the field of Radiology, it combines the key themes of understanding how medical images are formed and appreciating what images reveal in the clinical context.

Medical Imaging impinges on virtually every facet of clinical practice and is one of the key elements in diagnosis, monitoring, and in some cases guiding therapy. Knowledge of the appropriateness and limitations of the various techniques for imaging is an important skill for all clinicians irrespective of which field they ultimately wish to specialise in. The programmes offered in Medical Imaging are not clinical courses, however the teaching of the technical aspects of the various imaging modalities will be firmly grounded in the clinical usage of those modalities.
