Program Overview

The curriculum is developed in close consultation with the radiography industry to ensure relevance and graduates’ employability. The programme will be seeking accreditation by the Allied Health Professions Council, thus enabling graduates to practise as professional radiographers in Singapore.
 

Diagnostic radiography involves the use of sophisticated equipment and techniques to produce medical images of the human body. These images are typically used to diagnose or treat illness or injury. Diagnostic radiographers are integral to healthcare teams. They use their professional training to deliver a sensitive and patient-centred healthcare service. The equipment that radiographers use includes X-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Other more specialised settings in which radiographers may work in include fluoroscopy, mammography, nuclear medicine, and interventional radiology. Besides caring for patients, radiographers are also actively involved in other areas of healthcare such as research, education and administration.

 

The SIT Diagnostic Radiography program focuses on applied learning and provides high-quality, practice-oriented education in the following areas:
 

  • Health and behavioural sciences. Broad-based knowledge in health and behavioural sciences, including anatomy, physiology, patient care and safety, psychology, health systems, professionalism, interprofessional education, and change management.
     

  • Radiological science and technology. Professional knowledge in radiological science and technology, including radiation physics, radiobiology, radiation protection, radiological anatomy, radiological informatics, medical imaging technology and processing.
     

  • Radiography practice. Professional knowledge in different areas of radiography practice, including general radiography, fluoroscopy, angiography, CT, MRI, ultrasound, breast imaging, nuclear and hybrid imaging. This component also includes an undergraduate honours thesis that emphasises scientific enquiry and evidence-informed radiography practice.
