Diploma in Medical Imaging is a 3 years program. In the first three semester, students will be exposed to the concept of radiation science, anatomy & physiology, radiography technique & positioning, basic pathology, quality of radiography and instrumentation. The second semester onwards students are placed to undergo clinical attachment at various institutions and establishments in the health care industry to expose themselves to the practice of medical diagnostic imaging including general radiography, fluoroscopy, mammography, CT, MRI and ultrasound.
Students will be taught mainly focusing on the aspect of radiographic technique & positioning that cover general radiograph (upper extremity, lower extremity, shoulder girdle, pelvic girdle, thorax, bony thorax, vertebrae, skull and other parts), special imaging modalities include Fluoroscopy, CT Scan, MRI, Angiographic and others examination. The other core subjects include instrumentation, patient care and quality control as well as adhere to radiation safety.

Clinical Attachment
The student will be attached in the hospital at:

  • Ward (medical, paediatric, geriatric, orthopaedic), and also accident & emergency department to improve their knowledge and skills in handling and managing patients.
  • Radiology department (general radiograph and special imaging modalities) to improve their knowledge and skills in handling and managing basic radiography and special examination procedures.

At the end of this program, students should be able to:

  • Acquire and apply basic knowledge on theoretical and practical concepts of biomedical and health science.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in written and oral communication skills.
  • Performed radiographic procedures with independent judgment and discretion, analyzed the finished radiograph for quality and critically evaluate radiographic and medical images.
  • Identify and understand the importance of working in a safe working environment and understanding of the wider applications and the biological consequences of ionising and non-ionising radiation.
  • Work as a team with other healthcare professionals and foster good relationships with patients and professionals.
  • Apply the knowledge and skills in using the latest medical and clinical technologies that assist and motivated radiographers in their clinical practice.
  • Demonstrate professional behaviors that are consistent with the delivery of humanistic, moral, and ethical patient care.
  • Demonstrate critical thinking skills and problem-solving into social tasks, professional and issues related to the healthcare industry and educate patient in term of health
