Specialisation

Computed Tomography (CT) is designed for professionals & researchers investigating the area of CT and hybrid imaging and facilitates student learning whilst encouraging the use of evidence based practice and critical thinking. The specialisation provides a theoretical understanding of the science of CT instrumentation, image formation and radiation dose minimisation. Students will study the development of CT protocols and various operator selectable parameters. The content will include: oral and intravenous contrast safety and administration; routine and interventional CT procedures; post processing; dual source and multi energy CT; CT perfusion; cardiac CT; micro-, cone beam, mobile and flat panel CT; and CT in radiation therapy and hybrid imaging.

Graduate opportunities

Specialisations allow students to investigate an area of interest relevant to their professional practice or area of expertise. A minimum of 4 units of study (24 credit points) are required for each specialisation and each unit of study can only be used for one specialisation. For each specialisation a student will need to complete specified electives and an investigative project via the unit of study,'MRTY5043 Directed Studies A'. Students may achieve more than one specialisation if completing at Masters level.
