Radiological Technology

Radiographers make images of the human body with the help of large medical technology equipment. To do so they use imaging technology that implements ionizing or non-ionizing radiation. The methods range from skeletal radiology to magnetic resonance imaging. In this way they support the early diagnosis and treatment of several serious diseases. Diagnostic radiology, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine are therefore the focus of the degree program in which radiation protection is a key issue.

    Before the studies

    You are interested in both medicine and technology and are therefore looking for an intersection that combines both. You have already acquired a strong foundation in mathematics and physics. You approach problems logically and analytically, display manual dexterity when operating equipment and have a strong sense of responsibly. Your good spatial imagination helps you to analyze images. Despite all the physical and technical aspects, you never lose sight of the person, who you show great empathy. Strong social skills are also necessary for work in interdisciplinary teams. Your curiosity makes you open to science and research in order to also keep up with the rapid advances in medical technology in the future.

    Why you should study with us

    Practical training on campus

    Thanks to the state-of-the-art infrastructure, you will gain valuable practical experience during your classes.

    Let's go international!

    An internship abroad offers the opportunity to broaden your horizons and gain new impressions.

    Active exchange

    Numerous disciplines at one location: participate in research projects and learn from others.

    • Higher education entrance qualification:
      • School leaving certificate from a secondary school or a secondary technical school.
      • Secondary school vocational certificate (Berufsreifeprüfung)

    FAQ about application and admission

    Do you have questions about application and admission? Here you will find answers to the most frequently asked questions.

    Please note:
    It is not possible to save incomplete online applications. You must complete your application in one session. Your application will be valid as soon as you upload all of the required documents and certificates. In the event that some documents (e.g. references) are not available at the time you apply, you may submit these later via email, mail or in person by no later than the start of the degree program.

    The admissions process includes a computer-assisted admissions test and an online interview.

    • Goal
      The goal of the admission procedure is to offer a study place to those persons who complete the multi-stage admission procedure with the best results. The test procedures are based on the skills required for the intended profession.
    • Procedure
      The computer-assisted admissions test and online application interview include a series of test requirements and check to see if you meet basic intellectual and social-emotional performance requirements. It is about figural and computational intelligence, memory and concentration skills as well as social skills. Subject-specific knowledge is not part of the testing.
      For the computer-based entrance test, which takes place at FH, you will receive the link to the appointment selection by e-mail. Please select a date for the computer-assisted entrance test and arrive at FH at least 15 minutes before the appointment. It is not possible to enter the test room after the start time. Please refer to the respective Corona regulations for entry into the FH.
      After the test evaluation, those applicants who have reached the required skill level will receive an invitation to the interview at the FH via e-mail.
      The interview takes place in a group of 6-8 applicants and gives a first impression of the personal suitability for the profession. This includes professional motivation, professional understanding, performance and relective capacity.
      Each part of the test is evaluated with points and is included in the overall ranking.
    • Criteria
      The criteria leading to admission are solely performance-based. Geographic assignments of applicants have no influence on admission. The admission requirements must be met. The admission committee, which also includes the head of the study program and the faculty representatives, allocates the study places on the basis of the ranking.

    During the studies

    In the degree program you will learn how radiological technological methods work and what their specific advantages and disadvantages are. You are qualified to plan and perform analysis procedures with large medical equipment and to ensure quality assurance. Some methods only verify tissue changes, however nuclear medicine already identifies initial changes in metabolism. When performing radiological examinations, identifying cancer early, thanks to mammography for example, or radiating cancer, you will be working with ionizing particle or electromagnetic radiation. With the help of computer tomography (CT), sectional images of body parts are computer generated based on multiple X-rays. Electromagnetic waves, such as those used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are not ionizing.

    It provides detailed sectional images of tissues and organs on the basis of strong magnetic fields. Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to produce images. A positron emission tomography (PET) is a nuclear medicine procedure that utilizes low-level radioactive substances to produce images of biochemical and physiological functions in the body. With the help of all the techniques you learn about in detail in the degree program, you will contribute to the early diagnosis and treatment of several serious diseases.

    Radiological diagnostics, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine are the main focus of the degree program. Personal development, knowledge of health law, health economics and project management complete your education.

    • In the basic medical subjects such as anatomy, physiology and pathology you will acquire knowledge about the human organs and bodily functions.
    • Physical-technical subjects impart basic knowledge for proper operation of the equipment.
    • Radiological technical procedures and examination and treatment methods are the focus of the 36 weeks of internships.
    • Radiation protection, digital image data management and teleradiology will round out your education.
    • With in-depth electives you can set your own individual focus.
     

    Simulation training with real cases

    The new sonography simulator helps students of radiology technology to train ultrasound examinations. 

    The simulation system is based on virtual and real clinical ultrasound data with pathological findings of more than 500 patients.

    After graduation

    As a graduate of this program, a wide range of professional fields and career opportunities are open to you. Find out where your path can lead you.

    Radiographers independently perform examinations according to doctor's orders. At the intersection of human, medicine and technology, you will examine and treat patients with the help of radiological diagnostics, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine. On large medical equipment, you are responsible for ensuring examinations are carried out in a timely manner and in good quality and for post-processing the digital data. The large equipment includes computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as well as positron emission tomography (PET). As a radiation safety expert, you are competent in ensuring the protection of patients and personnel from ionizing radiation. You work in hospitals or X-ray institutes as well as in the medical technology industry. There you train employees in the use of large equipment, advise on the implementation of teleradiology systems and imageless (digital) X-ray systems, and cooperate in the development of medical devices. With this degree you will be qualified to practice the profession of radiographer. The MTD Act is the basis for this degree program.
