Course Objectives

Diagnostic Imaging and Radiation Therapy Technology graduates are healthcare professionals qualified to carry out, on medical prescription and working either autonomously or in collaboration with other healthcare figures, all procedures that require the use of both artificial and natural sources of ionising radiation, thermal and ultrasonic energy, nuclear magnetic resonance, in addition to physical or dosimetric protective procedures.

They assist in the planning and organisation of work within their place of work, on the basis of their specific competences; they oversee the supply of polyvalent services within their competence, in direct collaboration with the radiodiagnostic, nuclear and radiotherapist physicians and the health physicist, in accordance with diagnostic and therapeutic protocols set out in advance by the facility director.

They are responsible for duties that fall within their sphere of competence, in particular checking that the equipment entrusted to them functions correctly, eliminating minor incidences and implementing control and verification programmes to ensure that quality levels meet pre-defined standards and indicators.

They also assist in the training of support staff and contribute directly to the continuous updating of their professional role and research.

As part of the preparation provided for this professional role, universities guarantee that sufficient training in ionising radiation protection will be provided.

Career and Employment

Diagnostic Imaging and Radiation Therapy Technology graduates can enter professional roles in public or private facilities in:

  • production industries and sales agencies operating in the diagnostic imaging and radiotherapy sector
  • university and non-university research centres in the biomedical sector.

A sufficient command of English enables graduates to enter relevant working environments not only nationally but also at the European and non-European level.
