Master of Medical Imaging Science

Course overview

The Master of Medical Imaging Science enables medical radiation sciences graduates and professionals to develop research skills and specialised knowledge in the field, including the areas of computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, hybrid imaging, breast imaging and radiographic image interpretation. The rapid evolution of medical imaging technology calls for expert researchers to develop optimised imaging techniques and advance diagnostic efficacy.

You will cover core units and electives that will develop your understanding of current concepts in medical imaging sciences, and have the opportunity specialise if you are enrolled in the Graduate Diploma or Master of Medical Imaging Science.

Students enrolled in the embedded Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma programs can progress to the next higher award if they have completed all requirements.

Three courses are offered:

  • Graduate Certificate in Medical Imaging Science
  • Graduate Diploma in Medical Imaging Science
  • Master of Medical Imaging Science


Candidates enrolled in the Graduate Diploma or Master of Medical Imaging Science have the option of completing up to two specialisations. A specialisation requires the completion of 24 credit points chosen from units of study listed in the table for that specialisation.

Completion of a specialisation is not a requirement of the course.

The specialisations available are:

  1. Breast Imaging
  2. Computed Tomography
  3. Hybrid Imaging
