Overview

To determine or discover the diseases within the human body, by using an arsenal of imaging techniques that include X‑ray radiography, ultrasound, Computed Tomography (CT) and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of the diseases.

B.Sc. in Medical Radiology & Imaging Technology at Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences is a 4‑year undergraduate course in the institution succeeds in Educating, training and molding the future Imaging Technologists.

The program utilizes modern teaching methods and a combination of the theoretical aspects of the subjects with practical reinforcement endow the students with a superior knowledge and enable them to discover their hidden potential, realize the ever importance of hard work and hone their intellectual, analytical and managing skills towards a successful and fulfilling career, supplemented and guided by experienced and quality teaching throughout the course of study.

Diagnostic Radiographers/​technologists possess, utilize and maintain knowledge of radiation protection and safety. Radiographers have an extremely thorough understanding of the structure of the body, how the body can be affected by injury, and causes and effects of disease when taking X‑ray images. Their work does include a wide range of different imaging modalities radiographers are the primary liaison between patients, radiologist and other members of the support team. They remain sensitive to needs of the patient through good communication, patient assessment, patient monitoring and patient care skills.

Objective

  • Imparts knowledge and understanding of the structure and function of the human body as related to Medical Radiology and imaging technology. 
  • Provides sufficient understanding and cognitive abilities to operate, , and incorporate quality scientific methods, techniques, and processes applicable to Medical Radiology and Imaging Technology to achieve desired results. 
  • Imparts knowledge and training to develop transferable skills and the ability to work in teams, and diverse hospital settings.

Highlights

  • Proctoral System

    Under the Proctoral System, every student is assigned a faculty member as a Proctor or a mentor. 

    These mentors offer guidance, support and encouragement to students, helping them as they progress along their academic journey. From the choice of electives to their academic performance, from attendance to meeting their credit requirements, students can approach these mentors with any and every query. 

    Proctors also interact with parents/​guardians and keep them updated on the progress of students.

    To ensure that they reap the benefits of the Proctoral System, students are advised to be in regular contact with their Proctors.

  • Innovation Centre

    At the Innovation Centre, students team up with faculty members to bring their innovative ideas to life. 

    Ideas are assessed based on their relevance to and impact on society. These are then translated into working projects that are entered in national and international competitions, and for registration as patents.

  • Hospital Posting

    As part of the curriculum, students are posted to relevant departments of the hospital and gain hands-on experience to the actual working of the department and patient care. Students get sufficient practical knowledge to prepare them for joining the hospital as soon as they graduate.

  • Partner Facilities

    The Ramaiah Group was established in 1962 with a teaching hospital for medical students that was founded in 1985, and a Memorial Hospital in 2014. These hospitals cater to various income levels with a wide range of specialties. Students from AHS get hands on training and home their skills under supervision at state of art multispecialty hospitals.
