About medical imaging

Medical radiation technologists use x-ray and other imaging equipment to take images of people's injuries and possible health issues.

People working in medical imaging require:

  • A sound knowledge of human anatomy, physiology and pathology
  • Knowledge of positioning and imaging techniques, and the know-how of x-ray equipment usage
  • An understanding of physics and radiation physics
  • Knowledge of safety issues related to the use of radiation equipment and radioactive materials
  • Excellent communication skills so they can relate well to patients and other staff
  • Decision-making skills
  • Technical and computer skills
  • Organisational skills

Studying medical imaging

During our three year degree you will learn how to perform radiography as well as understanding how specialities such as Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), ultrasound, nuclear medicine, mammography and digital subtraction angiography, contribute to patient diagnosis and treatment.

You will spend a large proportion of your third year gaining practical experience in a clinical placement and throughout the course we will help you develop the interpersonal skills needed to deal with patients in a compassionate way.
