Imaging

Research areas include to main themes where supervision is available. The first area is mammography; this is used for screening and symptomatic purposes in the detection of breast cancer. Whilst our research has a particular emphasis on the optimisation of compression force that is applied during the imaging process we also consider related issues too. To date we have discovered several novel facts about the application of compression force. The second area concerns the balancing of X-radiation dose and clinical image quality; x-radiation is used in many aspects of diagnostic imaging however our work only concentrates on specific aspects of computed tomography (CT) and plain radiography. Presently we have a particular interest in low resolution CT for the detection of lung cancer. Our central ambition is to propose ways to produce images for minimal radiation dose whilst preserving diagnostic quality so that they are fit for purpose.

Entry requirements

A 1st Class or upper 2nd Class undergraduate degree; a Masters degree is preferred but not essential. However, applicants without a Masters degree should provide evidence of previous research methods training; applications are welcome from a diverse professional group, for instance physics, engineering, psychology, radiography and nuclear medicine technology; we welcome applications from students who may not have formal/traditional entry criteria but who have relevant experience or the ability to pursue the course successfully. The Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) process could help you to make your work and life experience count. The APL process can be used for entry onto courses or to give you exemptions from parts of your course. Two forms of APL may be used for entry: the Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning (APCL) or the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL). English requirement for non-UK/ EU students is an overall IELTS score of at least 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in any one element.
