To disseminate imaging knowledge, skills and understanding, to enable effective and efficient imaging clinically, in research and in industry.
Aims of our flexible, intermittent, part-time, online learning (OL) programme:
- to provide an understanding of imaging theory, techniques, analysis and applications
- to develop research planning and designing skills, incorporating imaging
- to enable interpretation and analysis of relevant imaging data
- to relate imaging research to clinical applications
- Describe the full range of imaging theory, techniques, analysis and applications.
- Discuss how imaging is used to investigate both normal and abnormal processes and functions (clinically and in research).
- Feel confident to undertake well designed, methodologically sound and practical research using imaging.
- Create a study design methodology.
- Analyse results and use statistics as applied to imaging studies.
- Be aware of health and safety regulations and legislation related to imaging.
- Translate from basic imaging research to the clinical arena.
- Be empowered to take a critical view of existing research particularly with an awareness of reproducibility and reliability of techniques, sources of bias in research and clinically.
- Demonstrate innovation before discussing and presenting their work to their peers.
- Development of skills in grant and research proposal formulation.
- Develop the tools to initiate and execute research autonomously and produce publishable research summaries.
- Develop good practice in communication and collaboration using modern online communication tools.
- Acquire imaging knowledge to engage with new developments.
Clinical graduates will exit the programme with improved clinical image management skills, and will also be better able to advise companies and businesses which develop tools and techniques for their specialties, where imaging is required. For pre-clinically focused students, an imaging skill set expands academic possibilities and is more likely to assist with translational techniques necessary to bridge the preclinical and clinical sciences.
The degree will also be attractive as a preliminary qualification before undertaking career training in hospital Medical Physics (for physicists and engineers), as well as a preliminary qualification before taking a PhD or research scientist post involving medical physics, medical imaging, biomechanics in academia or industry.
