What will I learn?

Diagnostic radiography involves the use of sophisticated equipment and techniques to produce medical images of the human body. These images are typically used to diagnose or treat illness or injury. Diagnostic radiographers are integral to healthcare teams. They use their professional training to deliver a sensitive and patient-centred healthcare service. The equipment that radiographers use includes X-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Other more specialised settings in which radiographers may work in include fluoroscopy, mammography, nuclear medicine, and interventional radiology. Besides caring for patients, radiographers are also actively involved in other areas of healthcare such as research, education and administration.

The Bachelor of Science with Honours in Diagnostic Radiography is a four-year, direct honours programme that prepares graduates for the role of a professional radiographer. It is the only diagnostic radiography programme among autonomous universities in Singapore. The curriculum is developed in close consultation with the radiography industry to ensure relevance and graduates’ employability. The programme will be seeking accreditation by the Allied Health Professions Council (AHPC), thus enabling graduates to practise as professional radiographers in Singapore.
