Medical Imaging and Radiotherapy Courses

Develop the ability to produce evidence through clinical practice and research to develop an in-depth critical understanding and of the medical imaging or radiotherapy professions.

Study Medical Imaging and Radiotherapy

At AECC University College, our courses in Medical Imaging and Radiotherapy are taught through the School of Radiology; Radiology refers to the study of techniques from X-Rays, ultrasound, CT, MRI , PET, nuclear and proton imaging. At undergraduate level you can choose to study either diagnostic radiography or therapeutic radiography. At postgraduate level our MSc Medical Ultrasound offers students with a qualification in a related background a route into becoming a more all rounded radiographer. We also offer short courses and CPD in ultrasound.

Our Courses

At undergraduate level our diagnostic imaging course teaches students the skills required to work as diagnostic radiographers. Our radiotherapy and oncology course provides students with the skills they need to work as therapeutic radiographers. At postgraduate level our highly adaptable MSc Medical Ultrasound is designed for those with existing qualifications in health care key to gain specialist skills in medical imaging. We are also developing new courses in Breast Imaging and Clinical Reporting and offer several popular short courses and CPD in ultrasound.

Why become a radiographer?

One in two of the population will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and so radiotherapy treatment, which uses high energy x-rays to treat tumours, has never been more important. Up to a third of people with cancer will need radiotherapy and will rely on people like you to provide it.

Study Diagnostic Radiography

Transform the lives of your patients and work at the cutting edge of healthcare.

Studying Medical Imaging and Radiotherapy at AECC University College

Ever wondered what it's like to study Medical Imaging and Radiotherapy at a small and specialist health sciences university? 

Students studying at AECC University College benefit from being part of a specialist health care community. Imaging facilities on campus include our: Open Upright MRIUltrasound Clinic, Virtual 3D machine (Radiotherapy), Digital X-ray suite, Quantitative Fluoroscopy, Direct Radiography (DR) room and our Centre for Biomechanic Research.

Open Upright MRI

We are lucky to have one of only 7 open upright MRI’s in the country. An Open Upright MRI scan can help if your patient suffers from claustrophobia, and enables more flexibility for patients who may not be able to lay completely flat. The experience is much less intimidating than a traditional lie down tunnel MRI scan. The patient can move between scans and see out (front, above and behind). This may be helpful for people who are nervous in closed spaces.

Things are always progressing in Radiography, there are always new techniques coming out and new machines that we can use to improve patients treatments. At the moment one of the things that people are talking about are the new proton machines and how they're going to improve treatment techniques, especially for paediatric cancers.
