Explore Radiography

Students in the new Centre for Medical Imaging

Radiography and imaging integrate science, technology, and patient care to play a crucial role in diagnosing and treating patients. As a radiographer, you will utilise various imaging techniques and advanced technology to generate high-quality images, aiding in the diagnosis of injuries or diseases within the multidisciplinary healthcare team.

Our postgraduate programmes in radiography and imaging encompass Advanced Medical Imaging, Nuclear Imaging, and Ultrasound Imaging, complemented by individual modules available for Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

These programmes offer a structured career pathway with opportunities to specialise in areas such as ultrasound, CT/RI scanning, image reporting, teaching, and management. Graduates can pursue careers across diverse settings including children's hospitals, emergency departments, or specialised centres for cardiac care, and may advance to roles as advanced or consultant practitioners.
