Radiography: Breast Evaluation PgCert/PgDip/MSc: What our students say

Student profiles

Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.

Name: Linda Hastings
Course: Radiography: Breast Evaluation MSc

"I currently hold the post of superintendent sonographer at the Royal Marsden Hospital (Sutton branch). I perform a multitude of scans including abdominal, deep-vein thrombosis, paediatric and small parts which includes breast.

Breast ultrasound constitutes about 80% of the scanning I perform. I started my masters at Kingston University in breast evaluation with the intention to extend my role.

To this end I started Client Communication and Breast Evaluation which is a double module. I had not studied for many years due to changes in my professional life. I worked in industry for GE ultrasound for five years and then started my family.

I found the assistance from the lectures in my first module extremely helpful and supportive which encouraged me to continue my studies.

The next most important module – to me – was Breast Intervention; once again I may not have survived this module without the advice and support from the lecturers. Practically I found this module relatively easy but it took longer than I had planned and I needed the encouragement I was given to complete the module.

I was surprised how much I enjoyed the Research Module and looked forward to my dissertation.

I have completed and passed my Breast Evaluation MSc. Now along with scanning the breast I perform fine needle aspiration (FNA), biopsy and wire localisations in the breast, which I have been doing for several years. I have since trained another sonographer in these procedures, I currently have one student who has just completed her FNA log book and will now proceed to perform biopsies of the breast and I have another sonographer waiting to start her intervention training."
