The aim of this program is to provide the training needed by physicists and technicians in order to acquire solid background. The training allows them to apply appropriate diagnostic imaging techniques in conventional radiology, C-arm radiology, contrast studies, hemodynamics, and angiography; nuclear medicine and PET-CT, radiotherapy, nuclear magnetic resonance, computed tomography, mammography, and other techniques. Additionally, it trains on the management of all equipment and instruments of involved in diagnostic imaging techniques, including the processing of the images and their delivery, as well as patient preparation before the studies are conducted. The graduates of this program can practice their profession in official and private health care facilities in the management of imaging services, thus being a fundamental part of the medical imaging team.
