Medical Imaging

This course is designed not only for recent graduates preparing for a career in medical imaging, but also for professionals already working in the field; it aims to cover all aspects of medical imaging, from the basic physics involved, through the different modalities, to the current issues involved in working in a modern UK NHS radiology department; the programmes offered in medical imaging are not clinical courses, however the teaching of the technical aspects of the various imaging modalities are firmly grounded in the clinical usage of those modalities.
