Diagnostic radiographers are responsible for the production of images involving the use of X-rays and other methods including ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), radionuclide imaging (RNI) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Assessment includes written assignments, poster presentations, practical experiments, clinical assessments, oral presentations, problem-based learning and a research project.

Career development is linked to continuous professional development with the opportunity to achieve postgraduate qualifications. Once qualified it is possible to specialise in an imaging modality or further develop your career within Radiography as an advanced or consultant practitioner.
