Masters degrees in Medical Physics – Radiation study the application of Physics to the development and deployment of radiation technology in a clinical setting, detecting and treating disorders and diseases.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Medical Imaging and Radiotherapy. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Medicine or Physics.
Courses in this field take an interdisciplinary approach to the design of advanced medical and biotechnology products and systems.
Training will typically include methodologies in three main areas. The first is in diagnostic radiology, using x-ray machines to obtain images of a patient’s body and determine any abnormalities. You may wish to specialise in an area of the field such as radiation oncology, which is the detection and treatment of various forms of cancer.
The second is nuclear medicine, which introduces radioactive substances to the patient for diagnosis or treatment. Finally, you could also explore techniques in radiotherapy, which uses ionising radiation to cure diseases such as cancer.
Careers typically include roles in clinical and healthcare settings, such as hospitals and specialist diagnostic departments. Other careers may include policy-making and administration for central government and related regulatory authorities.
