Learning and assessment

This part-time course is designed to be studied over an eleven month period and consists of two 30 credit core modules. 

A 'block' attendance format is utilised in the delivery of the academic learning components. This is consistent with the other named pathways within the MSc in Medical Imaging programme and is popular with students who benefit academically from the concentrated period of time that can be devoted to their studies.

There are five blocks of academic learning and these are delivered in the first six months of the pathway.

The CT module provides the underpinning theoretical knowledge with regards to CT technology and imaging protocols which is then built upon and applied through guided clinical study in the clinical CT module.

The Clinical CT module requires students to undertake a wide range of CT examinations to demonstrate evidence of their clinical learning.

Assessments include two exams and an assignment related to the Computed Tomography module syllabus, and a presentation and portfolio including clinical case studies for the Clinical Computed Tomography module.
