Radiotherapy and imaging training courses

The Division of Radiotherapy and Imaging offers a number of related courses to internal and external audiences. Course dates and places are limited - contact the course administrator or secretary for more details.

Due to staff working remotely, we ask that you email rather than phone at this current time. This will help us respond more quickly to your enquiries.

Radiotherapy equipment

Magnetic resonance image guided radiotherapy

An opportunity to broaden your understanding of the capabilities and potential of MRI -guidance in radiotherapy planning and treatment verification.

Magnetic resonance

Radioactive waste advisers training course

Provides the theoretical background and training necessary for managing and giving advice on the use of sealed and unsealed radioactive sources in hospitals.

Radioactive waste

Nuclear medicine and PET imaging course

This course gives an introduction to the underlying physics and radiochemistry principles which form the basis of nuclear medicine, before delivering a set of detailed lectures covering all aspects of imaging.

Nuclear medicine

Magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy course

An introduction to methods and applications of biomedical Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy, assuming no prior knowledge of the principles of magnetic resonance.

Magnetic resonance

Physics of medical imaging course

Provides the necessary physics background that underpins day-to-day medical imaging physics activities.

Medical imaging

Image guided radiotherapy in clinical practice course

This course is designed to help clinicians, physicists and radiographers to develop comprehensive programmes for the clinical implementation of image guided radiotherapy. The course has been awarded 19 RCR Category I CPD credits under The Royal College of Radiologists CPD scheme.

Radiotherapy in clinical practice

Radiation protection training course

Provides the theoretical background and training necessary for the radiological protection requirements of both ionising and non-ionising radiations used in hospitals.

Radiation protection

Practical and theoretical radiotherapy physics courses

Provides practical and theoretical education for the support of a modern radiotherapy physics service within radiotherapy.

Radiotherapy physics

Diagnostic radiology & CT course

This course is designed to provide in-depth academic teaching of the scientific principles underpinning x-ray and CT imaging, including descriptions of the imaging components, system testing and performance.

Diagnostic radiology

Ultrasound imaging course

This course is designed to provide the necessary physics background that underpins medical ultrasound imaging.

Ultrasound imaging

Image theory, perception and processing course

This is a one-day course which covers the underpinning mathematics of medical imaging, comprising image formation, image processing techniques, human visual perception and image display techniques including three-dimensional methods.

Image theory

Division of Radiotherapy and Imaging

The division is investigating new imaging methods to diagnose cancer, and ways in which advances in technology and molecular biology can improve radiation treatment.

ICR values

Our values – developed together as an organisation – make it clear how each and every one of us work to meet our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.
