MAHSA University’s Bachelor of Medical Imaging (Hons) is a 4-year undergraduate degree programme that trains qualified radiographers in the expert use of radiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT scan) and ultrasound for the purpose of diagnosing diseases and injuries. This degree in medical imaging (also called Medical Diagnostic Radiography) will qualify graduates as radiographers who are highly respected and in great demand in hospitals and medical centres throughout the world.
During the course, students will learn the diverse and complex subjects of human anatomy and physiology, general pathology, radiation physics, medical radiations, x-ray techniques, clinical radiography, regional and sectional biography for medical imaging, digital vascular imaging, mammography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, systematic imaging pathology, medical radiation science, radiation safety and biology, radiation safety standards and procedures, radiographic practice, image interpretation, health and statistics, and professional practice.
Upon completion this programme, students will be able to perform multifarious expert activities such as positioning patients correctly and effectively for ideal imaging results; utilizing radiographic exposure factors to optimize image quality and minimize patient dosage and exposure to radiation; and effectively using various methods of medical imaging to take images of parts of patients’ anatomies to detect injuries and possible diseases. They will also be able to use nuclear medicine to assist patients in the eradication of cancerous cells in radiation treatments; exercise maximum caution and care in the use of radiation to maximize patient and occupational safety; assess patients’ situations and provide solutions according to changing needs and limitations; adhere to and uphold stringent safety standards in the use of radiation equipment and procedures; and counsel and comfort patients to whom they are attending.
Ultimately, MAHSA’s graduating radiographers will be able to contribute a host of essential services to medical institutions everywhere.
