Diagnostic Radiography and Imaging (Hons) from Ulster University is designed to provide education at undergraduate level for careers in diagnostic radiography.


Diagnostic Radiography and Imaging (Hons) from Ulster University teaches you about the examination of apparently healthy individuals as part of a screening programme. As a diagnostic radiographer you will be required to evaluate the diagnostic and technical quality of images whilst at the same time recognising normal and abnormal appearances. Apart from the application of X-rays (including CT scanning), diagnostic radiography embraces ultrasound, radionuclide imaging, magnetic resonance imaging and other developing technologies. It is important to note that radiography involves working with ill and vulnerable patients, and that patient care is as vitally important as the technical aspects of the role.


There are many employment opportunities for Diagnostic Radiography graduates within the National Health Service, in private medicine and in companies concerned with the manufacture and sale of Radiography equipment and/or services.
