About

In this Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (MIRT) programme from Fontys University of Applied Sciences, you will learn everything about medical imaging in radio-diagnostics, radiotherapy, ultrasound and nuclear medicine.

Overview

The bachelor’s programme in Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (MIRT) from Fontys University of Applied Sciences is a 4-year, full-time programme. In these 4 years, you’ll learn how to use medical equipment in order to prepare, execute and process visual imaging research and treatment. You’ll be trained as the professional link between technology, safety and patient care. 

The programme covers how the human body functions, which examination you can perform when presented with a clinical case, which equipment you should use for diagnoses or treatments and how these devices work. We’ll teach you the effects of radiation and radioactivity on the human body and how you can protect yourself and your patient against these effects.

Why the MIRT programme at Fontys?

  • The programme offers good balance between practical and theoretical study with a strong emphasis on practical work.
  • We offer excellent studying facilities and the classes are small, which provides a supportive and motivating learning environment.
  • You work with real patients, so that you get the needed work experience to become a well-rounded professional.

What are you going to learn?

You will learn to use medical equipment to prepare, perform and process imaging studies and treatments. You are a link between technology, safety and patient care. You will learn how the human body works, which examinations go with which disease, which equipment is needed and how this equipment works. You learn:- 

  • All about radiation and radioactivity and how to protect yourself against it
  • Working with advanced equipment for medical imaging
  • Combination of theory and practice: learning by doing

Due to the technical nature of the course, it’s important that you’re sufficiently proficient in advanced mathematics and physics.

Career opportunities

The MIRT programme at Fontys University of Applied Sciences will prepare you for the profession of medical imaging and radiotherapy expert (diagnostic and therapeutic radiographer). Due to variation in the legislation and regulations of different countries concerning operating medical devices that deliver (ionising) radiation, additional work experience or other proof of skill could be required in your country of origin.
