TEACHING

The programme employs a diverse range of teaching and learning strategies in order to meet the outcomes of the programme and the modules studied.  Equality and diversity issues are addressed within the range of learning options available, and also in terms of the module content, which aims to address the needs of a range of service users.

  • Learning methods include:
  • Lectures
  • Tutorials
  • Practical image viewing / examination
  • Hands-on workshops utilising our skills labs
  • Seminars
  • Blackboard online learning
  • Self-directed study
  • Clinical experience
  • Clinical tutorials

Students on clinically related modules are expected to complete required clinical experience to meet the learning outcomes and prepare them for assessment of competence.  The nature of this experience has been determined wherever possible through an evidence base, and by the guidance of professional and accrediting bodies, and external benchmarks.

In order to meet the pressure of service demands, part-time students may study up to 60 credits in one semester of an award.  Students are counselled carefully and offered support both in the University and at the workplace, as the employing trusts agree to allow students the extra time needed for study in that semester.  This has proved successful in previous cohorts of students.

ASSESSMENT

The assessment strategy encompasses both formative and summative approaches to enable students to meet the aims of the modules studied.  

Formative assessment supports students in developing new skills or applying transferable skills to new areas. Formative clinical assessments in clinically related modules are performed by mentors, who are offered training in their role and are supported by the programme team.

The assessment strategies for all modules have been designed to reflect current best practice, and aim to provide an integrated approach across all the pathways of study within this award. The use of portfolios where appropriate allows students with diverse needs and differing learning styles to evidence their knowledge and skills in a way that is best suited to their individual needs.

Assessment methods are designed to suit a variety of learning styles and include, for example;

  • Assignments
  • Viva Voce
  • Exams
  • Portfolio
  • Objective structured assessment
  • Poster presentation

The percentage and mode of assessment depends on the individual modules.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Most students have been seconded from and return to their work in the National Health Service with advanced practitioner status, and a number have gone on to become  Consultant Practitioners. Students will also be supported to apply for Advanced Practitioner Accreditation with the College of Radiographers.

LINKS WITH INDUSTRY

The radiography directorate has a very successful history of developing advanced practice, and this course has strong links with imaging departments, mostly within the UK National Health Service. It is also supported by the North West Medical Physics Department. This means that all your learning will be relevant to current practice and will ultimately benefit your patients through development of your clinical skills and enhanced knowledge.

Topics are delivered at a pace that gives you more time to learn about that area and relate this to your own practice.

Structured activities help you to think about each topic and discuss ideas with your peers – videos, screencasts, quizzes, directed reading, virtual workspace for discussion, and interactive and collaborative work.

Regular webinars where you and your peers join together online at the same time to engage in a teaching session with your tutor or other forensic specialist.

Webinars take place on an evening (6.30pm - 8.30pm) and there are approximately six per 12-14 week module.

Courtroom simulation – learn how to give evidence and experience being cross-examined.

International specialists in the field of forensics, demonstrating the multidisciplinary nature of forensic practice in mass fatalities incidents, will facilitate all sessions. Previously, these specialists have included forensic radiographers and technologists, consultant paediatricians, consultant paediatric radiologists, forensic pathologists, forensic biologists, forensic researchers, rorensic anthropologists, HM Coroner, and a post-mortem imaging service provider.

How you are assessed

The assessment strategy is designed to be compatible with distance learning and to provide a variety of methods, enabling a more inclusive assessment strategy – written assignments and presentations. These are submitted online or presented in the webinar room.

Employability

The Society and College of Radiographers advocates that those who undertake forensic imaging examinations must be educated and trained at postgraduate level. This course addresses this. Successfully completion of the course enhances your career as a practitioner with specialist imaging skills. 

Most advanced posts in the NHS require a master’s degree. If you plan to become the lead radiographer/technologist for forensic imaging in your department, the advanced skills you develop in this course will give you an advantage.

Feedback from previous students indicates that as a result of this course, they have become articulate and confident in presenting their research at conferences, aspiring, creative and confident in changing practice, aspiring to enhance practice resulting in promotion to forensic lead, and becoming more confident as a person. In addition, they have become articulate in writing at Level 7, critical of research, creative with learning and adaptable to learning and time management. Furthermore, they have been facilitated to be adaptable, confident, articulate leaders in forensic radiography with some becoming active committee members of the International Association of Forensic Radiographers, with some also engaging with the Department of Health and Home Office as a result, demonstrating the significant impact of this course on forensic imaging nationally and internationally.

Read more

Our postgraduate certificate in Dental Cone Beam CT Radiological Interpretation is a nine month distance-learning programme to train dentists to be able to use CBCT imaging appropriately to help diagnose clinical problems of the dento-alveolar areas of the jaws, correctly interpret the radiological signs and write structured radiological reports.

This course is mostly delivered online, so you can study with minimum disruption to your professional and personal life while benefitting from world-class teaching.

Key benefits

  • The first university-based training of its kind.
  • Enables students to understand and interpret the relatively new x-ray imaging modality of cone beam CT, enabling 3-dimensional cross-sectional imaging.
  • Curriculum delivered by expert teaching staff, all at consultant level and GDC-registered specialists in this subject.
  • The Dental Institute is home to the largest dental radiology department in UK, equipped with state-of-the-art CBCT machines.
  • Delivered primarily online, the programme also includes a block of face-to-face lectures and hands-on training at Guy’s Hospital.
  • Curriculum based on the recently adopted pan-European guidelines1 for CB scanner use, lead authored by King’s College London Dental Institute’s Jackie Brown.

Description

The programme provides knowledge and understanding of:

  • Legislation, guidelines and radiation safety in relation to the use of CBCT in dentistry
  • Justification and selection criteria for CBCT and dental radiography: the value and role of each technique
  • CBCT appearance of normal anatomy, artifacts and pathological conditions of the dento-alveolar region including:

Developmental conditions

  • Impacted teeth
  • Cysts and tumours
  • Radiological signs of benign and malignant lesions
  • Bone disease
  • Bone healing and post-surgical change
  • Soft tissue calcifications
  • Understanding of radiological signs of disease

Students will acquire skills in:

  • The process of making a differential diagnosis using radiological evidence
  • Image manipulation (anonymised scans and viewing software* provided)
  • Understanding which clinical problems may or may not be investigated using modern dental X-ray techniques
  • Viewing strategies for certain clinical applications e.g. impacted lower third molars, implants, endodontics, orthodontics
  • Understanding variations in normal anatomy in dental and maxillofacial regions
  • Critical awareness of limitations of CBCT and dental radiography and the impact of imaging artefacts on radiological interpretation
  • Writing radiological reports using a structured approach and concise description

Teaching

The course is a blended learning programme taught primarily online through the King’s College London’s online learning environment, KEATS (King's E-learning and Teaching Service) which provides information, interactive questions, assignments, use of bibliographic databases and reading material. Content is supplemented by online seminars and tutorials delivered by teaching staff.

The compulsory face-to-face component takes place for five consecutive days in September at King’s College London, Guy’s campus. This component will consist of four days of lectures, practical exercises, mock oral exams and tutor feedback, which will help to prepare students for the final exams taking place on the fifth day.

*In order to view and manipulate CT scans during your online self study activities, you will be required to use free software that only runs on Windows operating systems. More details will be given at the start of the course.

Notes for applicants

The course does not provide great detail on implant planning or image-guided planning/surgery, for which dedicated software is often required.

We have designed the postgraduate training for dentists who want to understand CBCT imaging and wish to write interpretation reports on CBCT scans of dento-alveolar region.

This course is not intended to train a dentist to become a radiologist. In UK, a radiologist is trained within a scheme approved by the regional LETB/Deanery, in a hospital setting, which requires minimum of 4 years full-time training and is examined by the Royal College of Radiologists.

Course format and assessment

The course is divided into modules. You will normally take modules totalling 60 credits.

You are required to take:

  • Physics and Regulations (20 credits)
  • Anatomy (20 credits)
  • Interpretation (20 credits)

Each module consists of 6 units. Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work.

Students are assessed through a combination of coursework, written and oral examinations.
