BACHELOR OF MEDICAL IMAGING (HONS)

 

  • Medical imaging or diagnostic imaging refers to a technique, process or an art of creating visual representations of body for clinical analysis and medical intervention. The main purpose is to reveal the conditions of internal structures without surgical intervention. Diploma in Radiography is a programme related to the science of imaging and diagnostic which encapsulate the production of radiographic images of internal organs by using ionizing or non-ionizing radiation, such as X-rays, gamma rays, high frequency sound waves and magnetic field.

    The main aim of this programme is to produce proficient and competent radiographers with world class ranking. Therefore, various activities in the area of education, practical and skills development are included.

    A radiographer is responsible to provide safe, fast and accurate radiographic examinations with the use of a wide range of imaging modalities. These include the conventional and digital radiography (C/DR), Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Ultrasonography (US), Angiography, Mammography and Radionuclide Imaging (RNI). In addition, aspects of image recording and processing, patient care and safety, communication and handling issues, human anatomy and pathology, instrumentation management and handling and radiation safety principles are also included.
