Radiography is the study of how we obtain the digital images of the human body using x-rays, isotopes, ultrasound or magnetic resonance.
Radiographers provide radiation therapy to patients who have cancer, and have the professional responsibility for the patient when he or she comes to investigation and treatment.
Radiographers are using X-rays, ultrasound, radioactive isotopes or magnetism and radio waves for testing.
Radiographers are also working with radiation therapy and in a team where radiology is used for treatment.
Technological development has a constant impact on the radiographer's role, it is dynamic and requires constant updating in the field.
Theory and practice are integrated throughout the program.
During clinical studies students acquire knowledge and insight in collaboration with experienced professionals.
The program provides knowledge of radiography as a discipline and profession.
Students will gain knowledge of procedures for radiation protection, quality assurance and documentation of work performed.
The programme also focuses on students' ability to ethical reflection.
