  • THERAPEUTIC RADIOGRAPHY: uses radiation to attack tissue (tumour). Radiation stops it growing and shrinks the cells, which can then be removed if needed by surgery. To do this you need special face masks that mean the patient can stay in the same position each time (if tumour is in the head). It’s important to plan the correct delivery so you don’t harm normal areas, and not to do it for too long as radiation in large doses is harmful, but not when used therapeutically – it is sometimes life saving. DIAGNOSTIC: If you have an accident and go to hospital, the chances are that you will see a diagnostic radiographer.
  • Very reqarding, satisfying and fulfilling career. Different people everyday, makes it very exciting and NOT boring. Feel free to share personal experience. It’s a 3 year BSC and a lot of practical work and placements are involved, so not just sitting in lectures! From the start of the course Money is good in comparison to other allied health professionals. Doctors work five years and start off at £22k, so three years and then £19k isnt bad at all! Plus the more you specialise and become senior it goes up! The tuition fees are paied so unlike Medicine you do not have to pay them or pay them back.
  • Tell them all about the entrance requirements and if they have any further queries or would like a prospectus to contact radiography@hscs.sgul.ac.uk . Also as a healthcare profession, there is normally a strong likelihood of guaranteed employment. Discuss any further information you think could be relevant. Personal experience? MAKE SURE THEY GET WORK EXPERIENCE! Any type of community experience for a period of time. Thank them for being a great audience and for their time…
  • If you have time some interesting films. First a normal ultrasound they should be able to tell the baby. – used to date baby and check size. The second is a 4D scan of the baby, relatively knew but good to tell congenital abnormailities – cleft palate. Not used in everyone, only complicated preg in some hospitals, very expensive! This shows the difference in scans with the foetus, good comparison to see the details and difference in views. Finally- it’s a croc with pellets inside. Its been shot at! Good way to see density changes, and it’s a bit of fun to guess!
