Das Radiologietechnologie-Studium führte Tina Rosskopf von Tamsweg nach Klagenfurt
Modern technology, medical expertise, close contact with people: Radiological technology involves many aspects of the health profession that require scientifically sound professionalism. This is exactly what is taught at the study programme "Radiological Technology" - in a personal and familiar atmosphere that is appreciated by teachers and students alike.
The radiology technology programme places great emphasis on the practical as well as social, communicative and scientific skills of the students. Above all, the safe operation of complex medical technology equipment forms an indispensable competence, which is combined with extensive knowledge of information and communication technology in medicine.
Preventive medicine, diagnostics and therapy with the specialist areas of X-ray, CT, MRI, ultrasound, angiography, cardangiography, nuclear medicine, molecular imaging as well as radiation therapy are part of the everyday professional life of radiology technologists and accordingly part of the everyday training of students. Radiation protection and patient safety are of paramount importance. Through image post-processing and analytical preparation of images, radiology technologists lay the foundation for the assessment by the doctor.
Collaboration is generally a big topic at the study programme in Radiologic Technology. In professional practice, professional exchange within the health profession as well as with other health professions is the order of the day. Accordingly, the study programme pushes responsible and respectful interaction with people, taking into account their cultural values, as well as inter- and multi-professional communication, In the "SkillsLab RT", practical access is made possible in conventional X-ray, fluoroscopy and angiography, mammography and ultrasound. This laboratory, unique in Austria, is housed in a former radiology department and allows students to practise most of the essential activities of the profession in a safe and stress-free environment.
Experience outside the study programme rooms is offered by the external professional internships, which start in block form from the second semester. Professional internships are also possible in distant and nearer foreign countries, such as Germany, Switzerland, Slovenia and Italy (partner universities in Ljubljana and Udine). These experiences give students a first insight into the diverse requirements of working in radiological technology.

General Study Information
In the study programme "Radiological Technology", the handling of the latest radiological diagnostic and therapeutic procedures is at the centre of the training. As a link between people, medicine and technology, radiological technologists work in a professional field that relies heavily on independent and autonomous work as well as interdisciplinary cooperation. Students are optimally prepared for their career entry with a modern mix of theory, supervised exercises as well as within the framework of professional internships.
Suitable for a health profession, students can expect a "healthy start to their studies" right at the beginning, which is intended to ease the initially challenging new situation of beginning their studies. The students also receive special support in the practice-oriented "SkillsLab" as well as in practical exercises with external cooperation partners, where they get to know radiology technology processes in hospitals and private practices at close quarters under expert supervision.
What students should bring with them to their studies:
- Great interest in medicine, technology and IT.
- Enjoy contact and dealing with people as well as polite and respectful manners.
- Communication skills, empathy and very good German language skills at level B2/C1.
- Good spatial imagination.
- Ability to work accurately, independently and on your own responsibility.
- Ability to work in a team and under pressure.
- Organisational and planning talent, process thinking and flexibility.
- High level of personal commitment, sense of responsibility as well as curiosity and pleasure in lifelong learning.
After successful completion of the degree programme, graduates have the following skills and knowledge:
- They understand the independent and autonomous preparation, execution, clinical analysis, evaluation and quality assurance of diagnostic imaging methods and therapy procedures in radiological diagnostics and interventional radiology, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy.
- They operate complex medical technology equipment and have extensive knowledge of information and communication technology in medicine.
- They can administer contrast media or radioactive substances according to a doctor's orders.
- They pay attention to patient safety and radiation protection within the framework of comprehensive quality management.
- They lay the foundation for the assessment of images by the doctor by applying the methods of image post-processing and analytical preparation.
- They are prepared for scientific work, write Bachelor's theses on practice-relevant topics and also have the opportunity to work on research projects of the study program.
