You will gain hands-on experience of a modern gamma camera during the practical. Departmental visits allow access to state-of-the-art imaging systems and radioisotope production facilities. Lectures are delivered by experienced clinical staff and leading academics. They reflect current best clinical practice and provide content around research methods and analysis techniques. This ensures the course remains current and reflects the full range of applications of the technique. It provides an overview of career possibilities in medical imaging applications of radiation and provides a knowledge base to make informed choices around future careers or study.

Covers the whole field of Nuclear Medicine, including PET. Starts with the physics of instrumentation from radiation detectors to gamma cameras, and PET images. Considers the use of this equipment in clinical practice and the measurement of performance for quality control. The interpretation of nuclear medicine images and their role in clinical practice is considered together with the application of data processing techniques.
