The objective of the Degree Course in Medical Radiology Techniques for Imaging and Radiotherapy is to create a professional figure capable of carrying out independently, or in collaboration with other health figures, all diagnostic and therapeutic interventions prescribed by the doctor and which require the use of ionizing radiation, thermal and ultrasound energy, magnetic resonance.
Alongside the basic scientific subjects, the educational path includes specific teachings, such as Diagnostic Imaging Techniques and Radiotherapy with related digitization, archiving and transmission of images, Anthropology and History of Technology, Health Physics, Basic Oncology, clinic and Psychology.
Students can customize their study plan with elective educational activities of particular interest to them, for a total of 6 credits (monographic courses, participation in conferences and seminars, volunteering, additional optional internship, etc.).
The course of study includes an internship, carried out under the guidance of professional tutors, aimed at enhancing the student's ability to interact with other professional figures in teamwork and the human sensitivity necessary to manage the relationship with the patient with care and respect. The limited number of students also guarantees an easy and personal approach with the teaching staff.
