Master of Science in Medical Imaging Technology

Duration: 2 years (four semesters)

Eligibility:BSc MIT

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).

Course Description

Competencies

First  Year
I&IISemester

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.

Second Year
III&IV Semester

 

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.

The students will gain knowledge and develop skills in basics of nuclear medicine imaging, hospital practice and patient care, knowledge about various interventional radiographic techniques, knowledge of the advanced physics and components of MRI. 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.

Course of study:
The course is designed to impart practical knowledge with theoretical concepts ensuring optimum learning by the students.

  • Theoretical knowledge: Lectures, demonstrations, seminars, presentation and assignments.
  • Practical knowledge: Hands-on clinical experience in hospitals and diagnostic centres.
