B. Radiography and Radiation Science

ABOUT B. Radiography & Radiation Science
"build your knowledge in the science of medical imaging, optimize patient care, and contribute to advancements in radiological research."
Upon successful completion of the Bachelor of Radiography and Radiation Science program, our graduates will be fully equipped to demonstrate anatomical structures on radiographs accurately, utilizing their in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology, and radiographic positioning. They will be proficient in determining the best radiographic techniques while minimizing radiation exposure to patients and in evaluating radiographic images for appropriate positioning and image quality. The graduates will adhere strictly to the principles of radiation protection, not only for the patients but for themselves and others. They will be able to provide patient care and comfort, always prioritizing patient rights and dignity. They will be prepared to handle emergency patient conditions, initiating lifesaving first aid and basic life support procedures when needed.
