Core modules

You will undertake three taught modules and a research project.

Medical imaging

Topics include:

  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (MRI) imaging and applications in medical diagnostics
  • Optical Coherent Tomography (OCT) and its application to medical (e.g. opthalmology) imaging
  • diagnostic sonography (US, ultrasonography)
  • computed tomography (CT) and X-ray medical imaging.

Materials and security imaging

Topics include:

  • digital imaging and image processing (CCD, thermal, video, digital cameras)
  • advanced microscopy to include SEM, TEM, AFM, STM, polarising light microscopes, fluorescence microscopy, confocal and near field microscopes
  • spectral imaging (e.g. hyperspectral imaging and remote sensing)
  • interferometry and its applications in materials and security imaging science
  • X-ray and mm–wave scanning, imaging and analysis techniques
  • comparison microscope and imaging for applications in forensic science.

Research methodology and ethics

  • This module provides an underpinning in research skills relevant to the independent study required for an MRes.
  • Topics include scientific writing and referencing, use of library and learning resources, presentation of results and a statistical analysis.
  • The module also considers the ethical issues in relation to research in chosen field.

Research project

You will undertake an extended project (experimental or theoretical) on a full-time basis from February onward in an area related to your chosen imaging specialism. The project will be chosen from those offered by research teams.
