Certificate in Diagnostic Radiography Program is a three-year academic course in Radiological Technology which is a relatively new allied health science that has grown in leaps and bounds in recent years. Radiological Technology is a science of combining advanced technology and human compassion. This academic program aims to prepare qualified and skilled radiography technicians who will be able to work in Radiology department where they can perform radiographic examinations like kidney ,ureter and bladder (KUB),intravenous urography( IVU)and Mammography including plain X-ray of various parts of human body. They can perform special radiological procedures such as CT scan, MRI under the supervision of Radiological Technologist.
During three-year of the course, students will study about basic sciences subjects in the first year that are included in 10+2 Science course. These subjects are Physics, Chemistry, Zoology, Botany, Anatomy and Physiology, Mathematics Statistics and Computer Application, English, Nepali and Social Studies. In the second year, they will learn specialized subjects like- Radiography Technique, Radiography Photographic, Radiographic Equipment, Radiation Physics, Radiological Anatomy, Basic Public Health & First Aid/MCH/PHC. They will also be given adequate time for clinical practices on Clinical Radiology in hospital and other special settings to acquire practical knowledge and skills defined by the curriculum.
In third year two theoretical subjects (Basic radiographic pathology and hospital practice and patient cares)only are conducted and remaining time is allocated for this students at different hospitals for practicum.
