Master of Science in Medical Imaging Technology
Duration: 2 years (four semesters)
Medical imaging is important in virtually every facet of clinical practice and is one of the key elements in diagnosis, monitoring, and, in some cases, guiding of therapy. Using new imaging techniques, the imaging technologist can help in quicker and more accurate diagnosis of illness. Being vital members of the healthcare team, the postgraduates in medical imaging technology will be experts in the operational, quality and safety aspects of the radiological diagnostic service equipment like CT (Computerized Tomography) and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging).
About the course
The course consists of an advanced study of conventional radiology, radiographic procedures and CT scan.
The students will gain knowledge of the physical and mathematical aspects of image formation of the several imaging techniques in CT scan. The students will be involved more in practical sessions in the hospitals/diagnostic centers. Therefore, the students will get more exposure in performing the different radiological techniques, positioning and procedures with live patients.
The course consist of basics of nuclear medicine imaging, hospital practice and patient care, knowledge about various interventional radiographic techniques, ultrasonography and the advanced study of the physics, components of MRI.
