As well as working directly with patients, they consult with a range of healthcare professionals to design treatment programmes, procedures and therapies. Diagnostic Radiographers use the latest technology including Conventional Radiography, Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Radionuclide medicine (RNI) and Ultrasound (US) to examine the body and facilitate the effective and timely diagnosis of various medical conditions. We take a ‘learning through exploration’ approach enabling you to put the knowledge and skills you develop into practice using a variety of cutting-edge innovative simulated scenarios.
