Radiations Applied to Health Technologies

SPECIALISATION AREAS

  • Digital Imaging Technologies
  • Molecular Imaging
  • Protection against Radiation
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • Radiation Therapy
  • Multimodal and Functional Imaging


BACKGROUND

The use of radiations in Health Care has undergone many and varied developments over the last few years. Awared to these advances, ESTeSL offers a Master in Radiation in Health with six areas of specialisation that covers the major areas of the application of radiations in health care:: functional and multimodal imaging, digital imaging technologies, molecular imaging, protection against radiation, magnetic resonance imaging and radiation therapy. The objective of this Masteris to provide students with advanced training/education and a high level of skills that could make the difference in the employment market regarding the use of radiations in health care. It also aims to develop skills in applied research, mainly through the modules of Investigation Seminars and Research Project I and II; students are invited to assist to scientific events and, if possible, to present scientific communications.. Commercial and Industrial companies have shown interest in this Master’s, giving students the possibility of making the final project and training periods inside the companies, and sponsoring Merit Prizes and . We would like to point out that this Master has fully accredition by the A3Es Acreditation Agency, and has the collaboration ofthe Champalimaud Foundation as the scientific sponsor of the Master.

 

OBJECTIVES

The Master in Radiations Applied to Health Technologies aims to train professionals with high potential and wide-ranging skills in the field of radiations in health care. Each specialisation area is constructed in a coherent manner, in order to provid students with advanced competences and skills in those areas. This will allow students to go to the labor maket with the right tools for the most recent scientific and technological developments. The main motivation of this Master is employability and mastery of new radiation in health techniques.
