About this course

Radiology is now the key diagnostic tool for many diseases (Eye of Medicine) and has an important role in monitoring treatment and predicting the outcome. Radiologic Science is the health profession concerned with imaging for medical diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of disease.

Radiology is now the key diagnostic tool for many diseases and has an important role in monitoring treatment and predicting the outcome. Radiologic Science is the health profession concerned with imaging for medical diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of disease. Technological advances and the creation of new imaging modalities now place Radiologic Science among the most dynamic, expanding, and high-demand fields in clinical medicine. Because it is comprehensive, careers for graduates in radiologic science are not limited to clinical practice in X-ray radiography but extend to areas such as General radiography, Vascular imaging, Cardiac catheterization, Fluoroscopic procedures, Interventional radiology, Ultrasound imaging, Nuclear Medicine scanning, Computerized tomography scanning, and Magnetic resonance imaging.
