Course summary

If you have an interest in science, technology and medicine and want to work as a healthcare professional, diagnostic radiography brings all of these elements together to play a pivotal role in patient diagnosis and subsequently patient treatment. On this Diagnostic Radiography BSc, approved by the Society and College of Radiographers (SoR) and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), you will learn about specialist techniques like positron emission tomography (PET), radionuclide imaging (RNI) and mammography, as well as commonly used projectional radiography using digital imaging (general x-rays), fluoroscopy (continuous x-ray image), ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). You will also learn to produce and analyse high-quality clinical images to help detect, screen for and monitor the response of disease and trauma. You’ll be taught by staff who are themselves HCPC-registered radiographers with decades of combined experience across a range of specialties, studying in a hospital which provides comprehensive diagnostic and interventional radiological services as well as 24/7 emergency services as part of the Hospital Trauma Centre. We have recently invested £1.8 million in our simulation facilities, which now includes two fully functioning ceiling-suspended x-ray tubes, a mobile x-ray machine and mobile image intensifier, as well as two ultrasound machines. These allow us to simulate most areas of general radiographic practice and enhance your learning before your clinical placements. This course prepares you for a range of career pathways, including clinical specialisation, management, teaching and research. You can also choose to carry on with your radiography studies at postgraduate level. Course highlights
