Career opportunities and access to further studies

Today's radiographer has a greatly expanded role and takes on many duties. Radiographers could be making decisions such as which examination to perform or advising on procedures - all areas of healthcare where a real difference to both patients and practitioners can be made.

Being in possession of a dual qualification with equal competencies and skills in the two branches, radiographers would be able to increase their employability and be able to provide high quality practice while creating better opportunities for career development.

Once registered, radiographers could work in the public or private sector, go into research or become a lecturer and train others in the profession. They could also choose to work abroad or undertake additional training to specialise in an area of radiography.
