Radio- Imaging Technology is a specialty in medicine where trained professionals wok on diagnosing pathologies through medical imaging using ionizing radiation. It involves understanding of radiation physics, role of radiation in diagnostic radiology and imaging, hazards of radiation and protection of self, other personnel, patient and public from radiation. It provides hands on training of X-ray unit, DEXA, ultrasound, mammography, DSA, CT and MRI.
Radio-Diagnostic Imaging is a critical component of patient’s treatment. Almost all departments rely on the radiological examinations for the diagnosis of pathologies and conditions. All the patients coming to radiology department have the right to receive optimum quality image with minimum radiation exposure consistent with good patient care.
The purpose of this program is to standardize the Radio-Imaging technology at graduate levels throughout the country so that it will benefit in achieving uniformity work as a practitioner as well as resultantly relating component radiographers working with appropriate expertise.
At the present, in our state very few universities are generating health professionals specialized in Radio-Imaging domains.
This graduate program introduced by Faculty of Allied Health Sciences (SGT University) prepares healthcare professionals having extensive and practical knowledge in the fields of Radiology and Nuclear medicine on Local, National, and International fronts.
The primary goal of the Radio-Imaging Technology graduate program is to train radiographers with the knowledge, skills and competency to provide optimum quality professional services in a wide variety of settings including academic, governmental, corporate, and military and community based organizations.

B.Sc – 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry & Biology from approved & accredited any board.
- Professionally work as a Radiographer (full time job).
- Can work as a health care professional in corporate world.
- Professionally work in Cath-Lab as a Cath-Lab Technician.
- As a part of health care team in accident and emergency.
- As a part of health team in intensive care unit and operational theatre.
Department of Radiology with support from Anatomy, Physiology and Community Medicine
The interdisciplinary curriculum is based on both a clinical and public health model for practice. The major focus is on population aggregates rather than individuals and indirect rather than direct care to clients. Fellows are prepared to participate in a multi-disciplinary approach to planning, implementing, managing, and evaluating programs and services for worker health and safety.
It is assumed that there will be approximately 1630 teaching hours in three year period of course. Out of these, Theory teaching (Modules) will be of 1180 hours and Practical will be of 450 hours. The teaching will be carried out on various modules for Occupational and technical medicine.
The fellows will be exposed to practical demonstration in various Industries for above purposes
|Heads||Semester wise||Total hour/ Year|
|Home assignment: Any 3 assignments per semester as given in modules (only one from each module).||10 hours for each assignment
(30 hours/semester )
|Participative learning||150 hours /semester||300|
The theory training will be primarily from cognitive domain while practical training will be from cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain.
Course distribution: The Graduation program will be of three years duration. It will be divided into three equal terms of one year each.
|TOPIC (Subject wise)||HOURS||CREDIT HOURS|
|The topics covered in first year will include|
|Modular teaching modules||560 hours||190|
|TOTAL TEACHING HOURS||1070 hours||360|
|The topics covered in second year will include|
|Modular teaching modules||480 hours||160|
|TOTAL TEACHING HOURS||990 hours||330|
|The topics covered in third year will include|
|Modular teaching modules||560 hours||190|
|TOTAL TEACHING HOURS||00 hours||390|
Subsidiary subjects are added for overall development of students and to enhance their knowledge.
Professional /Clinical Training
- Students are expected to complete at least three months training with corporate hospitals or diagnostic centers.
- Students will have to observe the protocols on different modalities.
- Students assume primary responsibility for preparing the patients for diagnostic examinations.
- Students will have to carry out diagnostic imaging under the supervision of healthcare staff.
- Students should complete a research project investigating a topic of interest to them in radio-imaging. Research opportunities in X-rays, DEXA, CT, Mammography, DSA, ultrasound, special procedures and MRI are available.
- This research should lead to paper/ poster presentation at a professional meeting and/ or an article for publication
Elective Training / Optional posting
Would be arranged by the students duly supported by the faculty for observation / hands on training in the Industry / Hospital or similar external Organization may be as Summer Placement / Winter Placement
Summer / winter vacation Training / Optional posting:
The students will be given assignments/project for their summer and winter vacations for which they will be required to undergo training at the hospital/laboratories/ diagnostic centres of their choice .The students will be asked to present their project/work report on coming back after their vacations. This will be reflected in their evaluation for internal assessments. Due support to the students will be provided for this training by the faculty.
