I wish to share my Draft. Your suggestions and feedback will be appreciated.
Why have you choose your prefered course?
I wish to pursue postgraduate diploma in health science in medical Imaging(ultrasound Pathway) because of my enthusiasm in ultrasound imaging, its wide range clinical application, and further obtain specialised skills and knowledge. Ultrasound imaging equipment has seen being increasingly evolve with additional applications that highly recommended specialised medical imaging technologist to maintain and apply their knowledge and skills in the clinical setting.
In country xxx, particularly in the province there are limited medical diagnostic tools available, which implies ultrasound imaging a first line tool often relied on to detect, evaluate, diagnose and manage patients. Therefore, Ultrasound imaging is very popular and effective with its application and clinical competence in the treatment of patient.
Ultrasound imaging has high sensitive and specificity in detecting different types of pathology. Ranging from pediatrics to human body systems, organs and trauma. In contrast , ultrasound uses Doppler principles , electronic array technology and three dimensional 4D scanning that requires an advance skills and techniques to manipulate the equipment. So with its ability to aid in diagnosis, ultrasound imaging is very important to consider when evaluating patient in clinical setting.
Medical imaging profession centers on patients and integrated with other healthcare professionals. Achieving good interpersonal relationship and uphold professionalism is vital in developing our healthcare system.
Whilst working as a medical imaging technologist, I have lacked fundamental scientific theoretical knowledge and skill in ultrasound imaging and clear clinical judgement to assist in diagnosis of patients. These has resulted in misdiagnosis and which has placed unnecessary cost to our budget for further referrals.
To sum up, this course will enable me to attain specialised knowledge and new skills to be effective as a medical imaging technician,as well as, to perform high standard of professionalism in medical imaging profession.
I hope these statement answers the question clearly.
