Breast Imaging is designed to advance evidence-based knowledge and expand professional skills in this rapidly developing area of medical imaging.

This specialisation will integrate the theory and practice of mammography in the context of breast screening and breast cancer detection. Areas studied include, the fundamentals of digital mammography, relevant radiation physics, technical priorities and client care.

Students will also cover the latest trends in new and novel imaging methods and technologies for breast cancer detection such as digital breast tomosynthesis, phase contrast, magnetic resonance, diagnostic ultrasound, and molecular imaging. Current research into reader accuracy will also be investigated.
