Medical Imaging

This programme develops the skills and expertise required to undertake skeletal image interpretation and the provision of associated definitive clinical reports. Modules within the programme build on previous learning. Starting with appendicular skeleton interpretation and reporting the programme then moves to consider axial skeleton image interpretation and reporting. Students have opportunities to complete a research methodology module to equip them as comfortable research users and develop skills as researchers who add to the evidence base. Staff running and teaching on the programme have extensive image interpretation and reporting experience and expertise and provide stimulating and informative lectures. Lectures are supported through blended learning delivered via our online platform and formative self-assessments to allow students to check their own progress. Those whose roles require image interpretation skills however do not need to undertake full image reports may also attend and complete the programme and undertake fewer clinical competence assessments. This provides the grounding to work in areas such as the emergency department or minor injuries where image interpretation is required for clinical decision making purposes but where the reports are issued from another department or party.

Entry requirements

Normally a minimum 2.1 HCPC Radiographer degree. Relevant clinical experience may be taken into consideration as evidence of equivalency.

Course modules

Modules include: foundations of appendicular skeletal reporting; appendicular skeleton 1 and 2; foundations of axial skeleton reporting; axial skeleton 1 and 2; research skills.
