Medical Imaging Sciences (BHS – MIS)

Bachelor of Health Sciences – Medical Imaging Sciences is a four year under graduate program that aims at developing health professionals competent to work in multi-disciplinary health care settings with skills specific to medical imaging.

Students enrolled in MIS major will develop executive skills, logical reasoning ability and diverse Medical Imaging competencies for professional practice through focused coursework and hands-on experience in Medical Imaging procedures.

Who is a Medical Imaging professional?

Medical Imaging graduate, also known as a Radiographer, utilizes the clinical applications of radiation and medical physics in conjunction with accurate positioning of the human body in order to image the area of interest, with the use of highly sophisticated and advanced machineries such as digital X-ray, multi-detector CT scanner, Interventional Imaging suites and high field Magnetic Resonance Imaging within a hospital or a medical diagnostic center.
