Why study diagnostic radiography at the University of Newcastle

Diagnostic Radiography students at the University of Newcastle have access to state of the art imaging and post processing facilities. 

Diagnostic radiographers are responsible for performing the most appropriate medical imaging procedure for the presenting condition. As a professional, you will communicate closely with patients and collaborate with a diverse range of health professionals. Accurate imaging is extremely important to both confirm a particular diagnosis and exclude other likely diagnoses.

When you study Medical Radiation Science at the University of Newcastle and specialise in diagnostic radiography, you will become proficient with computers and medical imaging technology including 2D, 3D and 4D. As a radiography student, you will learn to be an excellent communicator, focussed on the well-being of your patients.

We have state of the art imaging and post-processing labs on campus that will help you to learn the essential professional skills such as clinical reasoning and patient management. You will also have the opportunity to put these skills into practice during clinical placements in each year of your degree to build your confidence in diagnostic radiography.

This degree is accredited by Australian Institute of Radiography and graduates will be eligible to apply for registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
