Medical Imaging Science Capstone - MRTY5139

Year - 2018

The aim of the unit of study is for students to develop research skills for creating evidence for best practice within the discipline of Medical Imaging Science (MIS). The capstone is also an opportunity to apply the learning from core and elective UoS within the Master of Medical Imaging Science to propose and design a research project to address a problem faced in everyday clinical practice. The selected area of investigation will ordinarily be within the student's area of specialisation in the MIS course. The topic should arouse intellectual curiosity and be achievable within the timeframe of one semester. Developed research skills will include demonstrating the capacity to identify a question based on published evidence, proposing appropriate research methodology to investigate the problem, and recognizing ethical issues. Students will work independently to develop a literature review and an ethics application incorporating a proposal for a qualitative or quantitative research investigation. If the capstone is completed as part of an MIS research specialisation then the output will be a manuscript suitable for publication in a peer reviewed journal based on experimental work performed as part of previous MIS electives.
