(Thesis Option / Non-thesis Option)
College of Applied Medical Sciences is one of the health colleges at King Saud University, was established in 1396 AH corresponding to 1977G. The College is the first applied medical science college established in the Kingdom and aims to prepare leading health professionals with high professional and research skills through providing distinguished academic programs according to quality standards.
The Department of Radiological Sciences was established in the College of Applied Medical Sciences in the year 1400AH corresponding to 1990 G. The undergraduate program in Radiological Sciences is the first program in the Middle East. Since its establishment, the program has graduated more than 1500 students. The program received international accreditation from the German Accreditation Commission for Health Sciences (AHPGS) in the year 2011.
Radiological science covers multiple techniques for the diagnosis of diseases affecting the human body, including diagnostic radiography, Nuclear Medicine(NM), ultrasound (US), Computerized Tomography (CT), and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), where technologists perform radiographic procedures, apply radiation protection principles, evaluates images quality with practicing profession and patient care. Technologists who graduated from the program can find jobs in hospitals, clinics, and industrial companies.
The Department of Radiological Sciences at the College of Applied Medical Sciences has the availability of qualified teaching staff and research laboratories that support the conduct of scientific research in various fields of specialization. Over the past five years, the department research groups have published more than 120 scientific papers in international scientific peer reviewed journals in the following fields:
- Nuclear medicine and Molecular Imaging
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technology
- Medical Ultrasonography
- Medical Radiation Protection
On the other hand, the health care sector in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, including the public and private sectors, reveals rapid growth in the number and type of health facilities, in particular the qualitative and quantitative developments in radiological sciences and medical imaging over the last decade.
