List of Radiography Courses in India

By Editorial

Radiography is a professional course under paramedical science. This course teaches students who are trained to perform diagnostic tests during treatment with the use of radiation. Radiography is a subfield of Medical Science that deals with diagnosing the diseases of the internal and hidden organs of the body using different radiations like  X-ray,CT scan (Computer Tomography), Ultrasound (sonography), MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), Fluoroscopy, Angiography, PET (Positron Emission Tomography), etc. Radiographers operate the patients with the help of radio imaging machines like X-ray and then interpret the results. They also work for the treatment of cancers and tumors withradiation technology. The Radiographers who have also trained to perform the ultrasound are known as sonographers.In common language, Radiography deals with taking images of the internal organs of the human body for diagnosis.

Some other specialized fields related to Radiography:-

  • Bone Densitometry – As the name suggests, it is used to measure Bone Mineral Density (B.M.C.).
  • Basic X-Ray - It uses a small part of the radiation that is used to create pictures of the internal organs of the body. 
  • CT –it is known as Computed Tomography and it scans a particular body part using cross-sectional x-rays together.
  • Mammography - It uses a very low dose of x-rays to produce images of the internal structure of the breast. 
  • MRI –MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It is a combination of magnetic fields along with radio waves that combine to produce three-dimensional images (3D) of tissues.
  • Fluoroscopy - It is an advanced technology that uses x-ray along with a fluorescent screen to get a clear and real-time image of the internal body structures of a patient.
  • Angiography - It also comes under the x-ray technology and is used to view the blood profile inside the blood vessels.
  • Interventional Radiology - It is a non-surgical treatment that deals with vascular diseases using radiologic technology.
  • Cardiovascular Interventional Radiology – It helps to study and diagnose the flow of blood to and from the heart using the imaging techniques under this radiography.

Job Perspectives:-

  • Demand for Radiographers is increasing significantly as it is the new revolutionary field of medical science. Radiography is being used widely during the medical treatment and diagnosis of a large number of diseases that include cancer, tumors, ulcers, etc. The innovative advanced machines of the medical field require experts in Radiography to handle them properly.
