Imaging sciences


The rapid advance of medical imaging is transforming diagnosis and the delivery of clinical care across a spectrum of medical fields, from trauma to cancer and degenerative diseases. The field is constantly evolving as new technologies come on stream and scientists find new ways of using existing technologies, providing clinicians and research scientists with never-before-seen views inside the human body.

From the ever-finer slicing of MRI scanning to interactive 3-D modelling of internal structures, medical imaging is changing what is possible in diagnosis and treatment. These courses offer advanced training, including clinical placements that offer hands-on practical experience, and research opportunities to develop your ability to harness technological advances for the benefit of patients and wider scientific understanding.
