Course overview

This module will explore the academic theory behind the various Medical Magnetic Resonance techniques and provide the clinical radiographer with the knowledge and ability to make informed decisions and judgements about their clinical role.

In order to become a competent and professional member of the team the radiographer must understand all aspects of the role and appreciate the factors which can affect final diagnoses. The radiographer must be able to critically analyse this information and apply it in the clinical situation. It is essential that the radiographer keep up to date with current trends within Medical Magnetic Resonance Imaging through constantly reviewing the appropriate current research and literature.

Through the use of student discussions throughout the duration of the module you will be presented with a range of working protocols currently in place in the clinical setting. This information will enable you to make decisions concerning best practice issues within Medical Magnetic Resonance.

In order to complete the assessments for this module you must spend a minimum of six weeks working in a clinical Magnetic Resonance Unit while the module is running.

This module aims to produce a specialist radiographer with an understanding of the principles of the techniques available for use within Medical Magnetic Resonance and to allow you to apply your knowledge and skills to the clinical situation and become a confident and reflective practitioner.
