About This Course
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.
Graduates of this course are eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council.
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.
Bangor accepts applications for Diagnostic Radiography throughout the year, while places are still available. However early applications are strongly encouraged as radiography does usually fill all its places well before the end of the admissions cycle each year.
