WHY STUDY THIS COURSE? Diagnostic radiographers examine patients using a variety of imaging techniques, from conventional radiography, CT scanning and fluoroscopy to more specialised modalities such as ultrasound, magnetic resonance and radionuclide imaging. They are responsible for the care of patients and the evaluation of resulting images. This degree offers an exciting mix of radiation science, human anatomy, modern technology and applied communication skills. MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE This course is only open to UK and EU students. The course involves placements in clinical departments, where students learn alongside working radiographers. Facilities include a digital x-ray suite, ultrasound equipment, eye-tracking facility and a bone density scanner. During clinical placements you will be expected to examine and engage with patients in the hospital environment.
