Radiography

There are two types of radiography course. Diagnostic radiography involves learning how to use medical imaging, such as X-ray, MRI and ultrasound to help doctors make a diagnosis. Therapeutic radiography or radiotherapy and oncology courses involve using radiography for the treatment and care of patients with cancer. Both types of courses include practical placements and qualify you to work as a professional radiographer. You will gain medical knowledge and patient care skills and learn how to use technical equipment.
