National Diploma Radiography (Diagnostic)
This programme prepares students for the professional field of diagnostic radiography which entails the production of x-ray images of the human body in order to diagnose disease. Employment as a student radiographer by an approved hospital is usually a requirement of the course. The theoretical and practical components of the course are covered concurrently. Upon completion of training, all students are required by law to undertake one year of community service. This is a prerequisite for registration with the HPCSA as a radiographer.
