Bachelor of Radiology & Imaging Technology is a 4 year long degree level course. At present Radiography is one of the most popular modern medical technologies available. This technology is used to diagnose various diseases and disorder in a human body. There are many methods adopted to diagnose these problems.
Some of them includes: –
- X-ray radiography, ultrasound.

- Nuclear medicine such as Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
- MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
These methods are taught to the students in the Bachelor of Radiology & Imaging Technology course. Some colleges in India only offer Bachelor of Radiology and few offer only Bachelors in Imaging Technology. But both these courses will enable the students to get a detailed image of the internal body parts and also help to teach their functioning which is impossible to see otherwise. These reports will help the doctors to properly diagnose the disease and provide efficient treatment to cure the problem.
A Bachelor of Radiology & Imaging Technology will give the students an overall knowledge about the Radiography. There are basically two types i.e. Diagnostic and Therapeutic radiology.

The Therapeutic radiography engages in the treatment of various diseases like cancer, ulcer and tumour.
