The Bachelor of Diagnostic Imaging and Radiotherapy with Honours is a four-year degree with two disciplines; diagnostic imaging and radiotherapy. Diagnostic Imaging is the practice of acquiring medical images of patients using a range of imaging modalities to confirm or exclude a medical diagnosis, to monitor patient progress, or provide medical screening information. Radiotherapy is the administration of radiation treatment using a variety of therapeutic modalities in the treatment of cancer. It also incorporates treatment planning, simulation, and dosimetry. Both professions require a combination of technical and scientific expertise and passion to work with patients.
The programme is designed with a foundation in basic medical sciences in the first year, followed by core professional courses from the second year onwards. Clinical practicum is introduced from the third year onwards. Students observe and perform tasks under direct supervision of clinical staffs then progress to working independently with minimal supervision. Students undertake an honors level research project in the final year of studies under supervision of professors in areas ranging from dosimetry to evidence based practice. The programme is accredited by the Malaysian Qualification Agency and recognized by the Malaysian Public Services Department.
