Presentation

The Bachelor's Degree in Imaging and Radiotherapy Techniques trains professionals to be suitably skilled to manage equipment exploiting different types of energy (X-ray, magnetic fields, ultrasound, etc.) for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. The actual collaboration with medical physicists, radiologists, nuclear medicine doctors, and radiotherapists is distinctive of the team work of this job-oriented degree programme.

Course content

The teaching activity is organised in traditional lectures and job-oriented internships in wards of partner facilities. During the programme, students learn the fundamental principles of physics, biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, general and clinical pathology, hygiene and first aid, which are the basic assets for a health professional. Of particular importance are the theoretical and practical lessons aimed at learning the methods of diagnostic and therapeutic use of ionizing radiation, radioactive tracers, thermal energy, ultrasonic and magnetic resonance, as well as computer applications in the radiological area with reference to the processing and storage of images, reports and data of clinical-health interest.

Career options

Graduates in Imaging and Radiotherapy Techniques are health professionals of the technical-diagnostic area who perform with professional independence, on medical prescription, the procedures necessary for carrying out diagnostic or therapeutic methods on biological materials or on the individual. They can carry out their professional activity in public or private healthcare facilities, as employees or freelance professionals, in the sectors of radiodiagnostics, radiotherapy, nuclear medicine, and medical physics. They manage and use complex equipment, whose function is to generate images of the human body for diagnostic and/or therapeutic purposes. The relationships with patients and the other healthcare professionals with whom they work in team are of key importance. This Degree directly qualifies graduates to the profession and allow them to access the Master's Degree Programme in Sciences of Diagnostic Technical Healthcare Professions or vocational master programmes (first-level) with no credit obligations.
