Master of Radiology (MRad)

Radiology is directing medical imaging technologies to diagnose and sometimes treat diseases. Originally, radiology deals mainly in translating x-ray images into diagnosis for the patients. However, the technological advances of today enable the experts of this field to utilise other state-of-the-art equipment, such as ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging to better diagnose and treat diseases.

As the world today is on the wavelength of rapid growth in both universal and personalised medicine, developments in molecular biology will also signify the highly probable increase in the demand for more accurate diagnosis and personalised therapy. This programme will address that demand by providing graduates who are able to combine the latest radiological technology with the optimum patient care standards that is the trademark of UM’s excellence in medicine.


Benefits
  1. The most rewarding part is the job itself. The specialized nature of the profession and the responsibilities involved are the main reasons radiologists chose their profession and decide to stay on this career path.

     

  2. Radiologists help patients both indirectly (by diagnosing medical problems) and directly (by treating diseases and conditions). Their ability to make a difference in the lives of patients is another rewarding aspect of this profession.

     

  3. There are numerous options for careers within the field of radiology. For example, in diagnostic imaging, a radiologist can specialize in several areas, such as neuroradiology, nuclear radiology, pediatric radiology and vascular radiology. Radiologists can also choose a concentration in intervention radiology (nonsurgical treatments in  which medical imaging is used to guide the procedure), radiation oncology (the treatment of cancer) or medical physics.

  4.  In conclusion, a prospective radiologist can look forward to a career that is both financially and emotionally fulfilling, and one that provides various job opportunities.
Career Opportunity
  1. Radiologist in a government institution or a private center.
  2. Academic radiologist involved in training future radiologists of the country.
  3. Radiologist involved in cutting edge research.
