BSc. Radiography


Diagnostic Radiography (or Medical Imaging) is the practice of using various forms of radiation to produce high-quality images which aid in the diagnosis and subsequent treatment of injury or disease.

It is a technology-dependent discipline, which has patient care as its main concern.

Historically, radiographers primarily used X-rays. With advances in technology, radiography also embraces techniques such as computed tomography (CT scanning), ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear medicine.

During your course you will have the opportunity to participate in all of these techniques, and you may then decide to specialise in one or more of them when you are qualified.

Radiological Sciences has experienced rapid and tremendous changes in the recent past due to technological advances in medical imaging and associated role development. Consequently, the body of knowledge necessary to cope with these advances and abilities, expertise, skills and responsibilities have similarly expanded. Radiography education must thus address these issues in  frame work and be poised for a continuous review as the need arises.

The programme is designed to fulfil the following objectives:

  • To prepare students with sufficient theoretical scientific knowledge base and practical skills that enable them assume professional positions as radiographers who can use the most complex medical imaging equipment and procedures.
  • To develop in students the relevant practical and technological competence in radiography practice at primary, secondary and tertiary levels of healthcare.
  • To assist students in the development of interpersonal skills necessary to function as members of the health team
