Program Curriculum

Medical imaging began with radiography after the discovery of X-Rays in 1895 by Wilhelm Röntgen, a German professor of physics. X-Rays were put to diagnostic use very early, before the dangers of ionizing radiation were discovered. In recent years, medical imaging has made very quick advances in medical diagnoses. With the use of different modalities such as spectrography, MR angiography, MRI, spiral CT scan, CT angiography, multislice CT, and EBCT the invasive methods of diagnoses have been significantly reduced.

Education in Technology of Radiology for Bachelor’s degree started many years ago in Iran. However, this major does not have a M.Sc. degree in our country; in many European countries and United States universities the degree of M.Sc. in Technology of Radiology is being provided. 


The graduates will be working with advanced modalities on Medical Imaging devices at medical centers with acceptable level of education.


The mission of this program is to train students with acceptable level of knowledge for working in medical centers with advanced imaging modalities in relation to patients.

The vision is to train and educate students and scholars on the bases of international standards in the near future and become an educational polar in the Middle East.
