Course content

Our multidisciplinary Medical Imaging Sciences MRes offers you the opportunity to undertake research in an exciting and rapidly evolving field. Medical imaging is growing in importance both in patient management and clinical decision making, and also in drug development and evaluation. You will work with a multidisciplinary team of academics directing a wide range of cutting-edge research projects, with an emphasis on putting ideas and theory into practice, literally “from bench to bedside”. 

Key benefits

  • You will have access to state-of-the-art preclinical and clinical imaging facilities.
  • Two research projects within the Imaging Sciences Wellcome/EPSRC Medical Engineering Centre or CRUK/EPSRC Comprehensive Cancer Imaging Centre.
  • Excellent research facilities based within a hospital environment where you will be encouraged to apply your clinical skills.
  • All learning materials are accessible online via King’s E-learning and Teaching Service (KEATS).
  • On successful completion of the MRes, students with a chemistry or pharmacy background can apply for membership with the Royal Society of Chemistry.
  • Clinically applied modules
  • May consitute first of a four-year PhD.

Description

Our Medical Imaging Sciences course aims to provide graduates of chemistry, physics, computing, mathematics, biology, pharmacy or medicine with advanced training in the imaging field.

We have designed this course mainly to prepare you for a PhD, but it also serves as training for employment in hospitals and industry. The key components are two research projects, which may be built around different aspects of a single research area in medical imaging. Medical imaging is a rapidly expanding field that needs input from team members with knowledge and skills in these different areas (chemistry, physics, computing, mathematics, biology, pharmacy, medicine) to achieve its promise in improving patient care.

Our course consists of required and optional taught modules in semesters one and two, and two medical imaging-related research projects in semester two. You will begin with a 30-credit introductory module, which will introduce you to the general area of medical imaging in all its forms and give you a firm grounding in the core elements of the course and preparation for the later research projects. Following this, you will be able to choose optional modules from a range of multidisciplinary modules from other masters’ programmes offered by the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences..

Throughout the course you will be provided with Research Skills training including a dedicated 15-credit module covering the topic in semester two.

Cardiovascular Stream

We also offer a selection of Cardiovascular Imaging modules, including Cardiovascular Imaging 1: SCMR and Cardiovascular Imaging 4: Introduction to Cardiovascular Physiology. We welcome applications from those with a background in Cardiovascular Imaging, and also from physicians, surgeons, technicians, cardiac physiologists and radiographers.

Course format and assessment

Teaching

We use lectures, seminars and group tutorials to deliver most of the modules on the programme. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study.

In full-time mode, attendance at lectures, tutorials, laboratory practicals, completing coursework assignments and private study is expected to fill a standard 40 hour week during the semester. The research project requires full time work at least during the months of June, July and August.

Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work

Assessment

The programme is assessed by a variety of mechanisms including: unseen written examinations; practical laboratory work and reports; case studies and oral presentations; workshops; audio-visual presentations; and laboratory- or library-based research projects.

The study time and assessment methods detailed above are typical and give you a good indication of what to expect. However, they may change if the course modules change. 

Career prospects

Expected destinations are study for PhD, employment (research or service) in the NHS and commercial nuclear medicine services, the pharmaceutical or medical engineering industry.
