Digital Imaging Suite
We support the teaching of radiographic skills with the use of a dedicated imaging suite.
The X-ray room contains equipment that is of a similar standard and function to that used in the clinical area and allows students to gain skills in radiographic technique before commencing clinical blocks.
In addition the room also contains a mobile fluoroscopy unit used mainly for project work, and a dedicated ultrasound unit used for both undergraduate and postgraduate study.
Medical imaging is a highly technical diagnostic tool and developments in technology are constantly being made. We have recently invested £55,000 to purchase and install an Agfa Computed Radiography facility in the imaging suite.
This brings the image processing capability into the 21st century and will enable us to prepare students for their future in digital imaging.
