Use medical imaging such as PET scans, MRI’s, and x-rays to identify problems such as fractures, tumors, or diseases. Radiology technicians and technologists often work in hospitals or diagnostic imaging centers. Careers in radiology require education in related medical fields.

This programme aims to disseminate medical image analysis knowledge, skills, and understanding, enabling effective and efficient medical image analysis which can be used both clinically and commercially.
Covering the physics of imaging and related techniques, there is also focus on specialised content covering image processing and analysis.
Students will also be able to make use of the MATLAB computing environment and programming language.
This programme harnesses our expertise in image processing and analysis, which will allow learners to train in this field via an online learning environment.

Magnetic resonance (MR) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a procedure that uses pulses of radio wave energy along with a magnetic field to image a specific body area. Structure and function of the body are then presented as cross-sectional anatomy images. MR has greater soft tissue contrast than CT, thereby creating detailed images.
Technologists employed in magnetic resonance imaging may work in hospitals, imaging centers. According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, technologists with certification in more than one diagnostic imaging area such as MR will be more marketable.
Admission to the MR Program follows the ARRT guidelines for post-primary certification. An applicant may be currently enrolled in an applicable imaging education program, such as radiology. However, the applicant must have attained registration status through ARRT in the applicable area prior to the start of the MR Program (mid-August). Another avenue for admission is to hold a current registration in radiography, radiation therapy, sonography or nuclear medicine. Sonography registration may be through either the ARRT or ARDMS. Nuclear medicine registration may be held with either the ARRT or NMTCB....

What is DMS?
Sonography can be used to examine many parts of the body, such as the abdomen, breasts, female reproductive system, prostate, heart, and blood vessels. Sonography is increasingly being used in the detection and treatment of heart disease, heart attack, and vascular disease that can lead to stroke.
The Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS) defines sonography as a diagnostic medical procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produce dynamic visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body. This type of procedure is often referred to as a sonogram or ultrasound scan.
