Radiography is one of the professions allied to medicine. Diagnostic radiography is an invaluable aid in the diagnosis of disease. Diagnostic radiographers are responsible for the production of images involving the use of Xrays and other methods including ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), radionuclide imaging (RNI) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).  Radiographers comment on image appearances for referrers after an examination is completed; they can also issue full reports after specialist postgraduate training. At postgraduate level they may develop their roles to include reporting on images, educating student radiographers, postgraduate training of radiographers or carrying out fluoroscopic, angiographic and endoscopic procedures. Radiographers work in many areas in a hospital, in addition to the imaging department, including A&E, operating theatres and on hospital wards. Why choose Bangor for this course?

You will typically spend 35 hours a week on the course when on clinical placement (including a half-day of study) and approximately 20 hours when in academic study. You will be expected to complete assignments/ projects and some practical work in your own time and prepare for clinical assessments. Practical work is extremely important and experiments using equipment and phantoms (dummies and test tools) are a major feature. Assessment includes written assignments, poster presentations, practical experiments, clinical assessments, oral presentations, problem-based learning and the research project.
