Accredited by the Society and College of Radiographers, this course will equip you with the skills to be a highly professional radiographer. Radiography combines science, technology and patient care to provide a vital role in patient diagnosis and treatment. Radiographers use a range of different imaging techniques and sophisticated technology to produce high quality images to aid diagnosis for injury or disease as part of the multi-professional healthcare team. The career structure provides opportunities for radiographers to specialise into many areas including ultrasound, CT / MRI scanning, image reporting, teaching and management.
