This subject explores the use of diagnostic imaging and diagnostic investigations in podiatric practice. A study of diagnostic science includes ionising and non-ionising imaging modalities; students develop skills in the appropriate use of diagnostic imaging in the management of lower limb pathology. This subject enables students to interpret X-rays and to evaluate images from other sources e.g. MRI, to a limited degree. A range of laboratory and physical assessment techniques - including vascular and neurological assessments -are also considered, with a focus on 'point of care' testing.
