B.Sc. in Medical Radiology & Imaging Technology

B.Sc. Medical Radiology & Imaging Technology is a 3-year regular degree program. At present Radiography is one of the most popular modern medical technologies available. This technology is used to diagnose various diseases and disorder in a human body. This course will give students insights of how the radiology and imaging technology is used for the diagnosis of various diseases and disorder in the human body.

A radiographer produces radiography of patients with the help of X-ray to find the exact medical condition of the patient. In addition with X-ray, a radiographer also considers CT scans, ultrasounds and MRI for producing radiography. Radiology field is broadly divided into two areas namely diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology. Diagnostic Radiology is the specialization of medicine that uses the images of X-Ray and other imaging techniques to diagnose the disease and injury of patient. Interventional Radiology is the another medical specialty that also uses imaging techniques (X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound) for direction. Patients can be treated and diagnosed using minimally invasive procedures.
