Diploma in Medical Imaging is a three-year program that prepares the graduate to be a professionally competent diagnostic radiographer. The development of the curriculum balances theoretical and practical knowledge in the university campus, campus labs, and all KPJ Specialist Hospitals with state-of-the-art facilities, with an up-to-date imaging modality. This training program is hoped to empower the graduates to be highly competent in their clinical skills holistically.
Medical Imaging is concerned with diagnostic procedures, health screening, and research, using sophisticated and ever-evolving technology of equipment, such as general radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasonography. Medical images of the human body are produced, to aid diagnosis and treatment planning. Diagnostic radiographers are important players in the healthcare team, to deliver a sensitive and patient-centered service using this specialized equipment. A more specialized radiographer may work in different modalities such as fluoroscopy, mammography, nuclear medicine, and interventional radiology. The prospect of medical imaging not only revolves in the clinical area but expands to research, administration, and education.
Graduates of this course may grow as radiologic technicians, or specialize in a particular area of medical radiography to become radiation technologists. Non-clinical professions of this course may include clinical instructors (education), modality application specialists, and researchers.
