Radiographers are responsible for producing high-quality images to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. While radiography is a caring profession, it’s also one that requires considerable technological and scientific expertise in both the production of images and the responsible delivery of ionising radiation. If you’re interested in science and you want to use your knowledge to care for people, Radiography at UCD may be a perfect fit for you.
