Historically, radiographers primarily used X-rays. With advances in technology, radiography also embraces techniques such as computed tomography (CT scanning), ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear medicine. During your course you will have the opportunity to participate in all of these techniques, and you may then decide to specialise in one or more of them when you are qualified. This course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the statutory regulatory body for allied health professionals. By the end of your studies you will meet the professional educational standards which confers eligibility to apply for registration with the HCPC. The course is also approved by the College of Radiographers, and during your course of study you will be student members of the Society and College of Radiographers.
