Medical Imaging

This course is of central importance in diagnosis, treatment monitoring and patient management; it is also a key tool in medical research; new discoveries in the understanding of normal physiological function and of disease processes continually arise out of imaging studies; it is becoming increasingly possible to relate imaging studies to genetic traits in individuals and populations; novel imaging biomarkers of disease can enable more rapid and precise diagnosis and inform decision making in drug discovery programmes.

Entry requirements

An Honours degree (minimum 2.1) in a physical science or engineering or biomedical science from a recognised institution, an approved and relevant postgraduate qualification (minimum postgraduate diploma or equivalent) or equivalent of previous advanced study, research and/or relevant professional experience, which the university accepts as qualifying the candidate for entry; in the case of non-UK applicants the institution certifying advanced study must be recognised and approved by the university.

Course modules

Modules include: Research methods; human biology (for engineers, physics students) or introductory maths and physics (for intercalating medical students and other students from a biomedical background); radioisotope imaging; non-radioisotope imaging; tutorials. Optional modules: quantitative imaging into practice (imaging biomarkers for healthcare and research); advanced MR imaging; advanced PET imaging; imaging in neuroscience; imaging in cancer diagnosis and radiation therapy; quantitative medical image analysis; mathematical programming for imaging research.
