Radiography and Imaging Technology

Bachelor of Science in Radiography and Imaging Technology (RIT) is a four-year program that aims to train the students in the basic imaging techniques of X-rays, USG, fluoroscopy, CT scan and MRI. This Program will provide the advanced knowledge of imaging facilitating the diagnostic services in the hospitals

Overview

Modern radiology is a vast and highly diversified field that includes diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, radiation therapy, and nuclear medicine. Medical Imaging Scientists, as they are colloquially known, work in all of these areas of radiological sciences, frequently at tertiary level medical centres, teaching hospitals, and academic research centres.

These highly skilled and specialised individuals work with patients undergoing procedures such as interventional angiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, doppler scanning, and ultrasonography. As a result, they are an important part of any modern hospital’s health care delivery team.

Career Opportunities

There are plenty of opportunities for graduate radiographers in: 

  • Teaching and General Hospitals
  • Patient Management
  • Fluoroscopy
  • Healthcare management and administration 

Program Learning Outcomes

At the end of the BS Radiography and Imaging Technology, the graduates will be able to;

  1. Work with Radiologists as a part of their team members in primary, secondary, and tertiary health care settings, managing and diagnosing different diseases.
  2. To pursuit their career in different research settings in an effective way.
  3. Assess, apply, and assimilate investigative knowledge to improve patient care.
  4. Demonstrate an understanding of the ethical principles of autonomy, beneficence, informed consent, and confidentiality.
  5. To practice quality and cost-effective healthcare.
