Ph.D. - Radiological Sciences, M.S. - Radiological Sciences;
The Radiological Sciences Graduate Program encompasses the diverse disciplines that focus on the application, control and development of the physical and chemical methods and techniques used in solving basic biological and clinical problems. Students in the program are offered the opportunity to gain knowledge and research experience in both laboratory and clinical aspects of radiological sciences through contact with basic scientists and clinicians. The students also have access to extensive up-to-date facilities.
The program is designed to afford students the opportunity to prepare for independent research, teaching, practice or service positions in universities, hospitals and industry in areas such as diagnostic and therapeutic radiology, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, computer-assisted tomography, and nuclear magnetic resonance. Graduate training and research emphasis are in one of three areas of specialization: the interdisciplinary aspects of the application of noninvasive methods (NMR, SPECT, PET, ultrasound) to pathophysiological investigations in vivo, the basic cellular and molecular effects of ionizing and nonionizing radiation, and radiological physics (physical foundations of the radiology systems and their applications).
