Medical Imaging Sciences is a health care profession concerned with imaging the body parts and diagnosing the disorders and diseases. Medical Imaging Sciences program focuses on the clinical application of X-rays, high field magnets and ultrasound waves in the medical field. Medical Imaging technology is a rapidly advancing profession and the radiographers are expected to have a higher level of knowledge and skills to operate modern and sophisticated equipment like Digital Radiography, Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). This program is designed emphasizing on the modern trends of imaging sciences and is delivered over 4 years (8 semesters) including internship. Students enrolled in MIS major will develop problem-solving skills and diverse Medical Imaging competencies for professional practice through focused coursework and hands-on experience in Medical Imaging procedures. On successful completion of this program, the student will be awarded the degree of Bachelor of Health Sciences (Medical Imaging Sciences) and qualify as a radiographer, which would be a stepping stone to a challenging career in medical imaging.
Who is a Radiographer?
- Radiographers work along with the radiologist (medical doctor) in performing medical imaging procedures to diagnose the diseases and disorders of human body.
- Radiographers operate modern and sophisticated Digital X-ray, CT, MRI and Interventional Angiography equipment to demonstrate and examine the anatomical structures by applying knowledge of anatomy, body positioning skills and medical imaging techniques.
- Radiographers are also trained to perform these duties at the patient’s bedside and in the operating room.
