Medical Imaging (Medical Image Reporting) PG Cert

The pathway is delivered in partnership with key clinical specialists to ensure that it is clinically relevant and delivered using appropriate expertise drawn from the higher education and hospital sectors.

A feature of this pathway is its clinical focus and its flexibility to support students who are reporting or planning to report in a range of imaging modalities and anatomical systems. By the end of the pathway, students will be able to apply their medical image reporting skills, of their chosen area of practice, within the clinical environment, ensuring that technically correct imaging reports are generated.

Typical areas of practice include reporting of the musculoskeletal system, chest, abdomen, cranial CT, and gastrointestinal system. Students should be practicing in the area for which they intend to study, for example cranial CT students must have access to clinical CT facilities.

The University of Bradford has a long tradition in Medical Image Reporting education and this experience is utilised in the delivery of this pathway. The Radiographic Image Reporting (RIR) Certificate pathway was first validated in 1996 subsequently developing to support reporting across a wide range of Medical Imaging examinations and has proved to be a popular choice of study demonstrating its continued clinical relevance and benefit to healthcare professionals.
