Course Summary

Mammography exists in a changing professional environment and requires practitioners to continually update and review clinical practice. These courses provide a flexible framework to prepare you for advanced practice by studying topics relevant to your needs and those of your clinical departments.

You may be granted credits for your previous academic and professional qualification through Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) scheme. You can take individual modules as 'free standing' as part of your continuing professional development (CPD). An independent work-based learning module enables you to study around your individual CPD and workplace needs.


Case studies; research protocols; dissertation; essays; portfolios; practical assessment; OSCE; reflective logbook.

Graduate destinations: Advanced practitioner; Consultancy; Researcher; and PhD. You will also achieve PGCert and PGDip awards in this course.


This module is designed for diagnostic radiographers and will be delivered jointly with the Cross Sectional Imaging - Therapeutic (RA7005b) module. Although the contents of the two modules are similar, there are distinct differences in the application of practice which will be evident in the assessment presentation. The module will bring together the physical principles and clinical applications of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. The aim of the module is to help diagnostic radiographers at all levels to make effective and safe use of contemporary imaging systems found in imaging departments. In addition by critically exploring technological advances in cross sectional imaging systems the module will also help prepare the radiographer for the future developments in imaging practice.
