Radiography & Medical Imaging

Message from Head of the Department

Dr. Mustafa Alhasan

I would like to welcome you to the Radiography and Imaging department at FCHS. Imaging science has become one of the most important fields that related to health care services. Different imaging modalities such as MRI, CT and US have provided invaluable information to physicians to diagnose and early detect different types of diseases.

Our goal is to provide our students with the highest level of knowledge and clinical practice skills in the field of imaging science.

Higher Diploma in Radiography

The Radiography & Medical imaging program at FCHS was established to provide health care services and communities with qualified radiographers recognized by local and international radiographic standards.

Radiographers/Medical Imaging Specialists are health professionals who work in collaboration with radiologists and other specialist medical practitioners to provide patients with a range of diagnostic examinations. Radiographers more specifically facilitate patient diagnosis and management through the creation of medical images using a variety of medical imaging modalities including traditional x-ray radiographic imaging; digital fluoroscopy and digital vascular imaging; computed tomography, mammography, bone mineral densitometry, medical ultrasound, nuclear medicine and magnetic resonance imaging.

Radiographers/Medical Imaging Specialists play a pivotal role in selecting and implementing the most appropriate examination protocols which will answer the clinical questions. This program provides a professional education in general radiography, computed tomography, general medical ultrasound, digital vascular imaging, nuclear medicine and magnetic resonance imaging to facilitate entry into the radiography profession.

Throughout the course, the physical and biomedical sciences are closely integrated with radiographic science and methods. Students will develop an understanding of scientific research in general and its application within radiographic practice. Under supervision, students will develop a range of professional skills in relation to the assessment and management of patients and implement radiographic and medical imaging techniques from an evidence based perspective. In the final year, students will extend their knowledge into Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Pediatric Imaging, Digital Subtraction Angiography, Functional Imaging, Nuclear Medicine and Bone Mineral Densitometry
