Our MSc in Medical Imaging will improve your knowledge of how technology can help detect disease and the use of these technologies in the modern clinical environment. The University of Aberdeen has an internationally renowned reputation for the development of new techniques for medical imaging, including being the first place in the world to build and use a whole body Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner.
The use of imaging techniques in medicine has been, and continues to be, an area of vast expansion. The specialities of this programme include the full range of medical imaging modalities, including Nuclear Medicine, Positron Emission Tomography (PET), MRI and Ultrasound. The University’s world class equipment and facilities will provide you with unrivalled insight into medical imaging. Gaining a degree from the University of Aberdeen, with its long history of delivering medical imaging programmes, will add significant credibility to your qualification.
The Medical Imaging programme shares many courses with the Medical Physics programme, but it doesn’t include radiotherapy and goes more deeply into image processing and image analysis in particular. The removal of the radiotherapy component from phase 1 (new for 2017) has also allowed us to include extra modules on maths/physics for imaging, making this programme accessible to those with a life sciences background as well as those with a maths, physics or engineering background.
Our Medical Imaging programme is taught using a combination of traditional lectures and practical classes. Many of our lectures are also recorded, meaning you will have immediate access to lessons after they have been taught and can replay them online when required. You will benefit from being able to learn outside the classroom in the university’s world class facilities, including the John Mallard Scottish PET Centre. Learning in these environments will enable you to apply your knowledge to medical imaging projects. You will also have access to the expertise of our staff, based in the Medical School and Foresterhill Health Campus.
