As a result of rapid developments in the field of radiology, this has brought forth great changes particularly in the field of medicine and ways of diagnosing diseases. This medical profession is becoming more and more important, as medicine is one of the areas which require improvement and innovation all the time. In addition, through the Technical Faculty of Radiology, UBT aims to prepare Kosovo and the professional world adapted and prepared according to the latest global practices. Despite the fact, the mission of the program is also to promote and contribute to personalized medicine, disease prevention and treatment of patients through advanced medical imaging.
Meanwhile, the vast majority of radiology technologists, who are employed in radiology departments and are engaged in diagnostic procedures (90%), which reflects the content of the study program are closely elaborated. Among others it’s worth pointing out that the underlying purpose of the study program is to meet the needs of public and private health institutions. Medical, dental, and veterinary diagnostic services can hardly exist without the use of procedures that use open and closed sources of ionizing radiation, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging. Therapeutic procedures that use radiation from closed sources and radiation with radioactive isotopes is a necessity in the treatment of malignant diseases in humans. As a result, none of these methods may be used without the participation of the radiologist in the work process.
Consequently, this field of study includes the work with modern equipment that provides radiological diagnostic and therapeutic services with radiation, learning about the work of the radiographic scientography apparatus and intervention radiology.
Furthermore, students are provided with the opportunity to learn through practice that will be carried out all the time in the modern UBT polyclinic, as well as the opportunity to learn through Virtual Reality, gives students access to the profession before they finish their studies. Consequently, this helps them to prepare from professional perspective.
