Course content

What will you study on the MSc/PGDip/PGCert Cardiac Ultrasound?

This course covers theory and practice of cardiac ultrasound and advanced signal processing. It also boasts a significant leadership and management component — teaching the legal and ethical issues related to biomedical research and clinical practice.

As part of the course, you will gain a solid grounding in experimental design and statistics and an opportunity to undertake an independent research project under guidance and supervision of an academic.

What will you gain?

You will gain advanced technical knowledge and skills in cardiac ultrasound. The programme will prepare you for a leadership or management role, and provide the solid foundation in research methodologies required for biomedical research.

Following the core BSE syllabus, this course is suitable preparation for the national examinations in echocardiography.

  • Modules
    • Advanced Signal Processing (15 credits) - Compulsory

      This module aims to provide students with a specialised body of current knowledge in the field of signal process methods used in clinical physiology, exploring concepts of signal processing for diagnosis and monitoring. Gaining confidence in the interpretation of diagnostic information, students will become familiar with specialised and advanced techniques and technologies. The module leads students towards a greater understanding of new methods for analysis of physiological signals.

    • Biomedical Ethics and Law (15 credits) - Compulsory

      The purpose of this module is to provide insight into a range of ethical and legal issues that relate to professional practice, research with human and animal subjects and to human reproduction — particularly various forms of reproductive technology. It will equip students with a broad overview of the relevant current UK ethical and legal regulations for research using human tissues. The ethical issues present in the rapidly developing area of genetic technology, including genetic testing and selection, genetic engineering, and the concept of genetic disease, will also be explored.By applying theoretical considerations to practice, the module will then explore ways in which, ethical and legal issues can be critically analysed and addressed.

    • Cardiac Ultrasound Practice (15 credits) - Compulsory

      This module equips students with the advanced knowledge of echocardiography required for current clinical practice.

    • Cardiac Ultrasound Theory (15 credits) - Compulsory

      This module introduces students to the underpinning theory of ultrasound and imaging.

    • Experimental Design and Statistics (15 credits) - Compulsory

      This module aims to provide students with the tools required to design effective and efficient experiments and to test scientific hypotheses. The module will also equip students with the tools necessary for statistical analysis in a hypothesis testing context.

    • Leadership and Management (15 credits) - Compulsory

      The purpose of this module is to provide students with an understanding of, and the tools to apply current theories and approaches to leadership and management in order to enable them to effect positive change in a team or organisation that they lead or manage.

    • Research Project (60 credits) - Compulsory

      This module aims to develop skills in the planning and execution of an analytical study and in the critical evaluation of real research results, drawing on knowledge acquired from other modules. In addition, the module will develop student’s communication skills to enable them to communicate their findings both in written and oral form.

    • Clinical Practice (30 credits) - Optional

      This module is concerned with the development of advanced clinical knowledge and practical skills required for specialist clinical practice. It also aims to further develop the practitioner’s clinical decision-making and critical analytical skills.

    • Advanced Clinical Skills (30 credits) - Optional

      This module aims to facilitate the development of advanced clinical knowledge and skills required for specialist clinical practice. It also aims to further develop the practitioner’s clinical decision-making and critical analytical skills.
