Course summary


The Breast Imaging programme is designed to address the increasingly specialised needs of practitioners for education to underpin professional practice in breast diagnosis.

A major feature of this programme is the option for you to pursue specific knowledge and skills development in your area of practice through the use of work-based learning e.g. breast ultrasound and ultrasound guided biopsy procedures.

The programme includes provision for developing a high standard of mammography skills. However, it also caters for those wishing to move into advanced and consultant practice to meet the evolving requirements of breast screening and diagnostic services.

The course and the modules listed within it are provided through a partnership between LSBU and the National Breast Screening Training Centre, King's College NHS Foundation Trust. The course focuses on competency development and attainment within the breast imaging and breast care fields, adhering to the national standards of the NHS Breast Screening Programme, the Royal College of Radiologists, the Society and College of Radiographers and the Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education

Applicants will normally be a Health and CareProfessions Council (HCPC) registered radiographer, with a relevant professional qualification, or in possession of a first degree in a science, biomedical or health and social care subject.

This course is validated as part of the Diagnostic Imaging PgCert / PgDip / MSc.


This programme will assist in developing your career options as a practitioner, or into specialist, advanced and consultant practice, research or management areas.
