Our MSc in Medical Imaging Science covers a multidisciplinary topic of central importance in diagnosis, treatment monitoring and patient management.Imaging is also a key tool in medical research and it is becoming increasingly possible to relate imaging studies to genetic traits in individuals and populations. Novel imaging biomarkers of disease can enable more rapid and precise diagnosis and inform decision making in drug development programmes.As medical imaging involves knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, technology and computation, our course is suitable if you want to expand your horizons in these disciplines.You will cover the basic science and technology behind the principal imaging modalities currently used in medicine and medical research, as well as advanced imaging methods, clinical and research applications, imaging biomarkers and computational methods. You will learn how advanced imaging techniques are applied in medical research and drug development with an emphasis on magnetic resonance (MR) and positron emission tomography (PET) imaging. You will also receive training in computational and quantitative methods of image analysis or in the interpretation of clinical images from different imaging modalities.This course comprises both a taught component and a research project, giving you the skills and knowledge required to pursue a career in an image-related field in clinical medicine, medical research, and scientific research or development.
This course is open to applicants with a biomedical science, physical science or engineering background. We require a minimum Upper Second honours degree or overseas equivalent from a recognised institution, or a relevant postgraduate qualification (minimum PGDip or equivalent).
