The Diagnostic Imaging programme has been created by merging the established Breast Imaging and Medical Ultrasound programmes to increase opportunities for inter-professional learning and to allow us to introduce radiography into our postgraduate teaching and learning portfolio.
It is aimed at local, national and international students, who wish to develop their academic and clinical skills, in-depth knowledge & understanding, research and professional practice in diagnostic imaging. We have a highly successful history of teaching breast imaging and medical ultrasound at postgraduate level in a multidisciplinary setting.
This programme is multidisciplinary and will appeal to a range of healthcare professionals including those practicing as breast imagers, medical doctors, nurses, clinical scientists and radiographers.
