Program Overview

Medical Imaging is concerned with diagnostic procedures, health screening and research, using sophisticated and ever-evolving technology of equipments, such as general radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasonography. . Medical images of the human body are produced, to aid diagnosis and treatment planning. Diagnostic radiographers are important players of the healthcare team, to deliver a sensitive and patient-centred service using these specialised equipment. A more specialised radiographers may work in different modalities such as fluoroscopy, mammography, nuclear medicine and interventional radiology. The prospect of medical imaging not only revolves in the clinical area, but expands to research, administration and education.

Bachelor of Medical Imaging (Hons) is a four-year program that prepares the graduate to be a professionally competent diagnostic radiographer. The curriculum is developed with close consultation with the clinical industry, tallies closely with the needs and demands in the current trends in the clinical practice of radiology. The modules delivered not only purposed to equip the graduates with the necessary knowledge and skills, but also to train them in achieving the highest interpersonal capacities, as well as critical thinking and decision thinking skills.

Career Opportunity

Graduates of this course may grow as a professional radiographer, supervise every facilities and equipment under care and conduct quality assurance procedure.  Non-clinical professions of this course may include lecturer (education), modality application specialist and coordinate identified research activities by preparing resources for literature review, research methodology and present the finding of the research
