- Learning Outcomes
- At completion students will be able to:
- Critically examine approaches for the selection of suitable imaging modalities as part of the patient's care pathway
- Demonstrate advanced understanding of anatomy for the selected anatomical systems and explain common pathologies and their risk factors and symptoms
- Evaluate the clinical course of a selected pathology and compared images from a choice of imaging modalities
- Illustrate an enhanced ability to analyse medical images logically, consider different diagnostic and management pathways with other clinicians and make informed decisions regarding patient care and personalised imaging
- Illustrate enhanced ability to communicate information, arguments and analyses effectively - orally and in writing - to a range of health care professionals
- Have a commitment to ongoing acquisition of new knowledge and new skills
- Display enhanced ability to apply specific skills in acquiring, organising, analysing, evaluating and presenting imaging and clinical information, in particular recognising increased prominence of digital-based activity
