BSc Medical Imaging Technology | TU

BSc Medical Imaging Technology (BSc MIT) is a four-year program offered by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) under Tribhuvan University. This program is designed to provide students with technological knowledge and skills in using various medical imaging equipment, with a specific focus on anatomy and physiology. It aims to equip students with the competencies required to work as competent managers, equipment handlers, and care providers in the field of radiology. The degree is recognized and accepted by the Nepal Health Professional Council.

Medical Imaging involves the generation of visual representations of the internal body parts for medical analysis and diagnosis. Various imaging technologies such as X-ray, ultrasound, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), and others are utilized to create medical images. These imaging techniques play a crucial role in assisting healthcare professionals in diagnosing and treating medical conditions.

The BSc MIT program prepares students to effectively operate and utilize medical imaging equipment. Students gain a comprehensive understanding of anatomy, physiology, and the principles underlying medical imaging technologies. They learn how to capture high-quality images, interpret results, and contribute to accurate medical diagnoses. Additionally, the program focuses on developing managerial skills to ensure the efficient and safe operation of medical imaging facilities.

Graduates of the BSc MIT program can pursue a variety of career paths in healthcare settings such as hospitals, diagnostic centers, clinics, and research institutions. They can work as medical imaging technologists, radiographers, ultrasound technicians, MRI technicians, or other related positions. The BSc Medical Imaging Technology, TU program provides them with the necessary knowledge and skills to contribute to the field of medical imaging and make a positive impact on patient care.

Fee structure:

The fee structure of BSc MIT for subsidized students is Rs. 2,29,400 and for full paying students are 6,01,030. The fee structure is for Nepalese student.

Objectives of BSc Medical Imaging Technology

BSc Medical Imaging Technology program at Tribhuvan University aims to fulfill the needs of the students  for following objectives:
