Master of Diagnostic Radiography

Course Overview

In the Master of Diagnostic Radiography, students will learn how to work with innovative imaging technologies ranging from small mobile X-ray machines to larger units, such as MRI and CT scanners, to sophisticated cardiac units, to enable accurate patient diagnosis and treatment.

Students will develop the skills and knowledge to produce medical images and critically analyse both these images and the data generated to determine whether they are diagnostically adequate and appropriate for radiological interpretation.

During this two-year degree, students will complete a number of clinical research and professional placement opportunities, allowing you to combine your theoretical study with the practical capabilities required of the diagnostic radiography profession. Clinical placements are undertaken across both the public and private sectors, providing the opportunity to practically apply your knowledge and develop invaluable industry experience.
