Course Description

Get the mix of knowledge and clinical expertise needed to launch your career as a registered diagnostic radiographer. With a degree in medical imaging (also known as Medical Diagnostic Radiography) you will be trained in techniques like ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT scan).

Using the latest equipment, you will learn basic x-ray techniques before advancing to more complex medical imaging procedures such as general radiography, digital vascular imaging, mammography, computed tomography (CT), general ultrasound (U/S) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
