Applying to train as a diagnostic radiographer

There are two types of radiography, diagnostic and therapeutic. Both need considerable knowledge of technology, anatomy and physiology and pathology to carry out their work.

The NHS employs 90% of all radiographers, with other opportunities in private clinics and industry. There are about 18,000 registered radiographers in the UK. The ratio of diagnostic to therapeutic radiographers is ten to one.
