It is a recognised pathway for Medical Radiation Technologists wishing to attain registration with the MRTB (Medical Radiation Technologists Board – New Zealand) in the Ultrasound Scope of Practice. Students in non-clinical roles may take a number of these courses towards generic programmes in Health Sciences.

Areas of study

Areas include ultrasound technology and its applications; ultrasound imaging appearances; protocol selection and development; and reflection on clinical practice. Courses in this subject area are offered in a flexible learning format (online delivery) with an optional annual medical imaging symposium also held at the School of Medical Sciences, Grafton Campus.
