Master of Medical Radiation Science

Graduation requirements

To graduate from the Master degree, students must satisfactorily complete 96 points ( the equivalent of 12 subjects) comprising any credit awarded upon admission (in recognition of previous study and experience) and, during enrolment in the course, different combinations of compulsory specialisation subjects, restricted electives and project subjects. The actual subjects required for graduation vary with the specialisation and are listed under course structure.

What is this course about?

CSU's Master of Medical Radiation Science is designed for practising medical radiation scientists to advance both their technological expertise and academic understanding of their chosen specialisation.

The Master of Medical Radiation Science is offered in four specialist areas: computerised tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, radiographic image interpretation and nuclear medicine.

In addition students may opt to enrol in the generic course rather than one of the specialisations. The generic Master of Medical Radiation Science course is aimed at radiographers, radiotherapists and nuclear medicine scientists.

This postgraduate course is designed for practising medical radiation scientists to advance both their technological expertise and academic understanding of the chosen specialisation, whilst continuing clinical work in these areas. The Australian Radiography and Nuclear Medicine professional bodies recognise the value of postgraduate study as a means of keeping pace with rapidly changing technology in these fields, as well as of enhancing research.

On completion of 64 points of study (including any credit granted), students may elect to exit the course with a Postgraduate Diploma. This option applies to the generic course and to all specialisations except Nuclear Medicine. The Postgraduate Diploma does not include research project subjects generally found in the Master degree.

The specialisations

Master of Medical Radiation Science (Computerised Tomography)

Recent advances in computerised tomography (CT) have made this well-established imaging modality an even more important tool in patient management. A Master of Medical Radiation Science (CT) degree has been developed for those working in the field of CT. This specialisation covers all aspects of modern CT practice. Students have the opportunity to research some aspect of CT for their final project.

Master of Medical Radiation Science (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

The Master of Medical Radiation Science (MRI) has been developed for those working in magnetic resonance imaging. This specialisation informs students of today's technology and also prepares them for the advances of tomorrow. In the final year, students have a chance to research a topic from MRI.

Master of Medical Radiation Science (Radiographic Image Interpretation)

This specialisation will meet the needs of students working in both Australia and overseas. It si designed to will give students an in-depth appreciation of medical images, in order to enhance their radiographic practice and allow them to make more informed decisions regarding radiography. This specialisation will also better equip students to give informal verbal radiographic opinions to referring clinicians, within the scope of professional codes of conduct. It will prepare the student for a radiographic reporting role if that is appropriate for the country in which they are working. This specialisation may be done entirely by coursework or may include the research project subjects.

Master of Medical Radiation Science (Nuclear Medicine)

The Master of Medical Radiation Science (Nuclear Medicine) specialisation has been developed for those working in the field of Nuclear Medicine. The course covers all aspects of modern nuclear medicine practice including advanced instrumentation, radiopharmacy and procedures and CT for Nuclear Medicine. Elective subjects include areas such as clinical education and management. Students have the opportunity to undertake original research in some aspect of Nuclear Medicine.

Master of Medical Radiation Science - generic course

The generic Master of Medical Radiation Science course provides students with a high degree of flexibility in their choice of subjects. It allows them to pick from a wide variety of suitable medical radiation science and health electives. Students can tailor their course to best suit their individual professional needs and preferences. Further, they have the option of doing the course entirely by coursework or by including the research project subjects if desired.

In addition to being available to Radiographers and Nuclear Medicine Technologists, the generic Master course is also open to Radiotherapists.

Course structure

The specialisations of this 96 point Masters course, namely, Computerised Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Radiographic Image Interpretation and Nuclear Medicine and the generic Master of Medical Radiation Science course, are not all identically structured. Each specialisation, consists of some compulsory subjects, along with different groups of restricted electives (where a subject has to be chosen from a restricted selection). The generic Master of Medical Radiation Science course however, consists of groups of restricted electives with no individual compulsory subjects.

All students who meet the prescribed standard entry criteria (see Field 2.6, Part A and Field 12, Part B), are awarded a 16 point credit package on admission, in recognition of previous study and experience. Once enrolled, these students have to complete 80 subject points to obtain the Masters degree, or 48 subject points to exit with a Postgraduate Diploma.

For students who do not meet the prescribed standard entry criteria referred to above, but who fulfil other appropriate criteria (see Field 2.6, Part A and Field 12, Part B), a Masters degree can still be obtained in the Nuclear Medicine specialisation and the generic Medical Radiation Science course (only). This group of students however, will be given zero entry credit, and will have to complete 96 subject points to gain the Masters degree, or 64 points for the Postgraduate Diploma, in these two programs. Hence these students would do all subjects that students meeting standard entry criteria would do, plus an additional two 8 point elective subjects.

There are two groups from which elective subjects may be chosen. These are defined as "Group A" and "Group B", as follows. The session(s) of offering (Autumn/Spring) of each subject is indicated in brackets as shown:

Group A:

HLT510 Clinical Issues in Health (A & S)
HLT511 Clinical Judgement and Decision Making (A)
MRS544 Clinical Sectional Anatomy (A)
MRS551 Magnetic Resonance Imaging Physics and Instrumentation (S)
MRS561 Computerised Tomography Principles (S)
MRS571 Appendicular Skeleton Image Interpretation (A)
MRS572 Axial Skeleton Image Interpretation (S)
PHY541 Ultrasound Physics and Instrumentation (A)
NMT500 Advanced Practice in Nuclear Medicine Science (16 points) (A & S)
NMT415 Computerised Tomography for Nuclear Medicine (A)

Group A subjects may be chosen as an elective, only if they are not already a compulsory subject in the specialisation being undertaken.
*These two elective subjects are restricted to students in the generic Master of Medical Radiation Science course, who possess a Nuclear Medicine background.

Group B:

HLT402 Learning in Health Contexts (A & S)
HLT403 Clinical Teaching Techniques (A & S)
HSM401 Perspectives on Health Care Systems (A & S)
HSM402 Human Resources Management (Health Services) (A & S)
HSM404 Management of Health and Aged Care Services (A & S)
HSM406 Resourcing Health and Aged Services (A & S)
PHL401 Critical Reasoning (A & S)
PHL402 Ethical Theory (A & S)
SSC502 Ethics, Law and Medical Systems (A)
BMS513 Laboratory Quality Control (A)
BMS321 Clinical Neuroscience (S)

The combination of electives that may be chosen from Groups A and B are defined for each specialisation. Group B subjects which may have been previously undertaken (e.g. as an elective in the Nuclear Medicine Bachelors degree program) will not be credited towards this program.
