About Medical Imaging, BSc - at University of Leeds

Medical Imaging impinges on virtually every facet of clinical practice and is one of the key elements in diagnosis, monitoring, and in some cases guiding therapy this course should appeal to all future clinicians. Knowledge of the appropriateness and limitations of the various techniques for imaging is an important skill for all clinicians irrespective of which field they ultimately wish to specialise in.

  • Course content

    At present there are limited intercalated programmes available within the UK with a focus on diagnostic medical imaging. The Intercalated BSc in Medical Imaging offered here at the University of Leeds will give medical students an introduction to diagnostic medical imaging alongside the teaching of standard academic skills. The course aims to cover all aspects of medical imaging, starting from the basic physics involved in different modalities, health and safety considerations, image formation, pattern recognition and applications within the field of Radiology. The research project runs throughout the academic year alongside the formal teaching giving the students the opportunity to accomplish a substantial piece of research. The BSc Medical Imaging is at this stage only offered to students wishing to intercalate. The award will be made to candidates who study and pass 120 level 3 credits. The degree is classified using the usual University of Leeds classification system for honours degree except that no calculation of Year 2 performance is included.

    Learning and teaching

    Taught modules are delivered in either a traditional of blended learning format and include the teaching of the technical aspects of the various imaging modalities. Many of the lecturers are at the forefront of research in their particular field and will bring insights from current Clinical imaging practice and developments of new and emerging imaging techniques.

    Students undertake a research project within the field of Medical Imaging. Before students are allocated to a project, the student is encouraged to meet potential supervisors and to discuss the research work. A range of new research topics are available each year and they include projects in MRI, Ultrasound, X-ray and their clinical applications; students are asked to express a preference for their research project.

    There is a staged assessment for the Research Project. The student submits a literature review in January and submits a journal-style research article in May. Each student makes an oral presentation in May / June.


    The taught modules are assessed by unseen written examination during the University exam periods in January and May.
