About this course


Work on the frontline of 21st century healthcare. In the Master of Diagnostic Radiography, you will learn how to work with innovative imaging technologies ranging from small mobile X-ray machines to larger units, such as MRI and CT scanners, to sophisticated cardiac units, to enable accurate patient diagnosis and treatment.

As a diagnostic radiography student, you will learn from expert academics how to work closely with radiologists to utilise a range of modalities to provide images and data for the diagnosis and treatment of an injury or disease. You will develop the skills and knowledge to produce medical images and critically analyse both these images and the data generated to determine whether they are diagnostically adequate and appropriate for radiological interpretation.

During this two-year degree, you will complete a number of clinical research and professional placement opportunities, allowing you to combine your theoretical study with the practical capabilities required of the diagnostic radiography profession. Clinical placements are undertaken across both the public and private sectors, providing the opportunity to practically apply your knowledge and develop invaluable industry experience.

Accredited by the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (MRPBA), the Master of Diagnostic Radiography is an approved program of study for provisional registration as a diagnostic radiographer (click here to view the MRPBA's approved programs). As an accredited diagnostic radiographer, you will have the opportunity to work in a range of settings, such as small regional clinics, large metro imaging departments, and emergency wards.

Prospective students must ensure that they understand the MRPBA’s registration requirements for graduates of this program prior to enrolment. The relevant information is provided below in the Professional registration section on this Sydney Courses webpage.
