About the Programme: Medical imaging is central to the management of cancer in the clinic, and this MSc has been designed to cover all aspects of medical imaging (from basic physics to image analysis) in a range of modalities as applied to the management of cancer patients. It also aims to give a solid grounding in current concepts of cancer biology and therapy as they apply ‘bench to bedside’. Designed in close collaboration with a leading team of radiologists, medical physicists, oncologists and research specialists, this programme takes a theoretical and a practical approach to ensure it provides you with the specialist knowledge and skills required to pursue an academic career in Cancer Imaging, or to provide a solid foundation for further study in the clinical disciplines. This MSc is studied full-time over one year, starting in September, and comprises two semesters of structured taught modules, followed by a full-time individual research project.
Programme content (Subject to Approval): This MSc is delivered by leading academic radiologists, medical physicists, scientists, research specialists and consultant clinical/medical oncologists through a combination of lectures, state-of-the-art computer-based image analysis practicals, and projects supported by 'problem classes', workshops and tutorials. Working with clinical datasets is an important part of the programme, which includes an extended 12-week cancer imaging research project carried out in the laboratory of an internationally-recognised cancer imaging scientist or clinician.
Core Modules • Introduction to Cancer Imaging • Research Skills • Imaging Modalities I • Imaging Modalities II • Image Analysis • Organ-Specific Cancers: Bench-to-Bedside • Research Project and Dissertation
Special features: This MSc is intended to give a solid foundation in Cancer Imaging. Students are paired with personal tutors for the duration of the course, which makes use of the research environment and infrastructure in the recently completed £6 million, state-of-the-art, cancer research facility housed in the Allam Building at the University of Hull as well as the clinical imaging facilities at Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital.
Careers This non-clinical MSc is designed for recent graduates who wish to pursue a career in medical imaging with a cancer focus, and the coverage of all aspects of medical imaging used in the management of cancer patients (from the basic physics through to clinical practice as seen in a modern UK NHS radiology department) mean it is suitable for professionals working towards clinical qualification as well as those already qualified. Molecular imaging and Cancer Research are a key strand of the biomedical science research theme at the university, and academics working in these areas are closely linked with clinical oncology and radiology colleagues based at both Hull Royal Infirmary and Castel Hill Hospital, as well as in the Hull York Medical School and the Departments of Chemistry and Engineering.
A minimum 2.2 honours degree (or equivalent qualification) in a Biological/Physical Science, Radiography or Medicine, or successful completion of three years of a UK medical degree or international equivalent. An IELTS overall score of 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in each component (or equivalent) is required of international students.
£5,600 (UK/EU) or £14,500 (International)
