Course Overview

Master a fulfilling career in diagnostic radiography
The Master of Medical Imaging – on successful accreditation by the Medical Radiation Practice Boardof will enable you to gain registration as a diagnostic radiographer for employment in both public hospitals and private radiology practices in any country. The course is highly career-focused and includes ongoing Work Integrated Learning (WIL), offering specialized opportunities across multiple fields of diagnostic radiography, such as general radiography, mammography, angiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) and medical ultrasound.

The Master of Medical Imaging is an accelerated three-year course completed in 2.5 years. The degree’s accelerated learning program allows you to graduate midway through the year due to classes being taught in the winter term. You’ll join the graduate job market earlier than many other similar university courses, giving you and your future employment prospects a competitive advantage. Download Course Catalog.


Study a Master of Medical Imaging at KIU and you will:

  • Gain advanced knowledge of scientific principles and concepts of all medical imaging techniques
  • Operate diagnostic radiographic instrumentation to optimize image quality and minimize radiation dose or other potential patient hazards
  • Understand protocols and techniques associated with diagnostic and interventional radiographic examination procedures
  • Learn anatomy, physiology, pathology, radiation protection, biology and dosimetry relevant to diagnostic radiography
  • Become familiar with normal and abnormal imaging appearances within current diagnostic radiographic procedures
  • Understand the role of a diagnostic radiographer within the wider healthcare team internationally
  • Work with patient information management systems.


Work Integrated Learning
WIL is a major component of this course, and you’ll be required to engage in clinical practice and/or clinical laboratories. From day one, your coursework will be immersive, with ongoing simulated learning experiences in the lab using a broad range of x-ray units designed to make you familiar with real-world technology. Your clinical placements and residencies across all three years of the course will give you the opportunity to interact with patients from a range of ethnic, age, gender and disability backgrounds, and you’ll experience those who may be severely injured or at the end stage of a terminal illness. You’ll work in environments which will require you to examine real medical images in detail, and will test your capability, both physically and mentally.
