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 Medical Imaging technologists 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 Extended Clinical Practicum. 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 BSc.MIS and qualify as a Medical Imaging technologist, which would be a stepping stone to a challenging career in medical imaging.
Who is a Medical Imaging technologist?
- Medical Imaging technologists work along with the radiologist (medical doctor) in performing medical imaging procedures to diagnose the diseases and disorders of the human body.
- Medical Imaging technologists 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.
- Medical Imaging technologists are also trained to perform these duties at the patient’s bedside and in the operating room.
