Medical imaging is the use of various technologies to create images of the inside of the body. It is a vital part of modern medicine. It can be used to diagnose, treat, and monitor diseases. Radiology is one subfield of medical imaging.

There are many reasons why you should study MSc Medical Imaging at the University of Dundee.

  • We’re 2nd in the UK for Medical Technology and Biomedical Engineering (Complete University Guide, 2023).
  • You’ll have access to the best medical imaging and ultrasound equipment in Scotland. This is based within our Clinical Imaging and Intervention Research Centre.
  • You will join leading researchers of CT, MRI, ultrasound, and optics in various clinical applications.
  • You will have the opportunity to develop your experience with site visits to the Institute of Medical Sciences and Technology, Ninewells Hospital and Medical School, and Tayside University Hospitals Trust. including the Clinical Research Centre, the departments of medicine, surgery, dentistry, ENT, vascular laboratory, and medical physics.

Throughout the course, you will learn to:

  • develop your skills, knowledge, and understanding of engineering design, medical imaging technologies and the clinical environment
  • apply, develop, and improve medical imaging and biotechnological products and systems
  • study techniques relevant to life sciences such as:
    • electrical
    • microwave
    • magnetic
    • acoustic
    • optical
  • study analytical and imaging techniques relevant for biology, biomolecular, and clinical sciences
  • receive broad practical training in biology and biomolecular sciences
  • undertake a research project. Recent projects have looked at topics such as:
    • minimally invasive high-resolution imaging for neurosurgery
    • tissue mimicking materials for the detection of prostate cancer using shear wave elastography
“The course gave me a fantastic opportunity to access the most advanced imaging methods in the world. I found working with active research groups to be both challenging and interesting. Moreover, the beautiful campus, advanced facility and rich activities in the University gave me a great platform to improve my ability.”
