This Medical Imaging course at University of Leeds is designed for recent graduates preparing for a career in medical imaging, medical students wishing to intercalate, healthcare professionals working as radiographers, sonographers, medical physicists, technologists and medics. 


Whilst not a clinical skills course, the teaching of technical aspects of imaging techniques is firmly grounded in their clinical usage. Many of our lecturers are at the forefront of research in their field and you’ll benefit from their expertise in the latest techniques and understanding.

We have a long history of providing medical imaging research and teaching in the application of the physical sciences to medicine. 

Our Medical Imaging course at University of Leeds covers:

  • the scientific principles involved in the different imaging techniques and image formation,

  • applications in the field of radiology

  • current issues in a modern radiology department


Past graduates have gone on to enter careers in medical imaging or related disciplines, such as radiology and radiography. Often students are already working in the area, and use the skills and knowledge gained in the programme to enhance their careers. Students have also gone on to take lecturer or research positions, or have chosen to take post graduate research degrees.

As a intercalated degree for medical students the programme is useful for students considering radiology or many other medical specialties.
