Course Outline/Content for B.Rad Medical Radiography

What is Radiography?

Radiography is the art and science of using high-powered radiation to provide images of the tissues, organs, bones, and blood vessels that comprise the human body. The radiations used to access the internal structure of the human body are X-rays, gamma rays, or similar ionizing radiation and non-ionizing radiation. Radiography is used to diagnose patients before and after treatment. 

Radiologists are physicians who are trained in the field of radiography. They possess the special ability to interprete diagnostic images, read or diagnose these images.

How Many Years Course is Radiography in Nigeria?

In every Nigerian institution that has the Department of Medical Radiography, the course is offered as a five-year standard B.Sc. Degree programme. Radiography is under the faculty of Health Sciences and Technology in most universities.

How much is a Radiographer paid in Nigeria?

In discussing radiography salary in Nigeria, we look at the federal government sector, state government sector and the private sector. On the average, radiographers earn between N100,000 and 150,000 for a start in federal settings. In state hospitals and laboratories, they earn an average of N80,000 – N120,000. Those in the private sector are paid between N70,000 and N100,000 as starting salary.
Of course, as the level and years of experience of the radiographers increase, their salaries are reviewed upwards.

Can a Radiographer be Called a Doctor?

Strictly speaking, a radiographer is not a medical doctor. The radiological education program is different at many points from the medical education programme for doctors.

Professional Sub-specialties in Medical Radiography

In standard tertiary institutions, the department covers the following professional sub-specialty areas:

  • Medical Diagnostic Radiography
  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Technology
  • Medical Ultrasound Technology
  • Medical Radiotherapy
  • Nuclear Medicine Sciences and Technology
  • Computerized Axial Tomography (CATSCAN)
  • Medical Radiological Physics, including Radiation Protection/Radiological Health Management and Education.
