Radiography and Medical Imaging - M3006
Radiography and Medical Imaging (Honours) course develops skills to become a registered radiographer. Radiographers facilitate patient diagnosis and management by using X-rays – including CT scanning, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) – to create diagnostic images for analysis and interpretation.
The program prides itself on the exceptional links it creates between the classroom and the clinical workplace. The practical skills you acquire will be reinforced by placements in a wide variety of clinical institutions, ranging from Victorian rural and regional hospitals to metropolitan Melbourne hospitals and private radiology practices.
This is an integrated course in which radiographic physics, imaging technique and methods, radiologic biology and professional skills are closely related and integrated with clinical placements. You'll be instructed by experts in radiography, benefit from a thriving research environment, and have access to general radiography laboratories and the ultrasound skills lab.
You will gain core knowledge and competencies in the following areas:
- assessing and managing patients
- general radiography
- digital subtraction angiography
- computed tomography
- general ultrasound
- magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
The program incorporates clinical placements in each semester. It is characterised by innovative teaching approaches, including a computer-mediated case-based learning program to assist in clinical decision making; a personal learning and assessment system that includes a clinical e-portfolio; a clinical-relevant scenario-based program focusing on cultural, ethical and moral issues; and a simulated learning environment, where students engage with 'avatars' to support clinical training.
Completion of the course will enable you to apply for registration as a radiographer with the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia. This registration is national and recognised in all states and territories of Australia. Graduates from this course are eligible to apply for a Statement of Compliance from the Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (ASMIRT).

Deliver collaborative health care
Radiographers play an important role in diagnosis and treatment. But it takes a whole team of different health professions working together to get the best outcomes for patients.
Gain a global outlook
"I spent four weeks on placement at Warrington Hospital. It was amazing to see firsthand how the profession differs in the United Kingdom, but also to realise there are such broad opportunities for students, like myself, when we graduate."

How do radiographers perform an x-ray?
Radiographers use medical imaging, like x-rays, to help diagnose injury or illness. Look inside our radiography skills lab on campus, as John and Susan show you how radiographers perform an x-ray.
