Radiographers are healthcare professionals that use radiation for diagnosis and/or treatment of diseases.  They are responsible for imaging of body systems by applying largely complex radiological machinery and skills as in computated tomography (CT), RNI, Angiography, Fluoroscopy, Ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).  They are also involved in interventional procedures, radiation Therapy, care of patients, management of radiography practice, research and Continued Professional Development (CPD). The ongoing growth of the Radiography profession worldwide, influenced by technological advancements and increasing demand for improved health care delivery makes the introduction of a BSc degree in Radiography inevitable.
Due to the absence of Radiologists in most hospitals, including some second and third level hospitals in Zambia, there is need to develop a radiography professional that will have extended competencies such as pattern recognition and/or film reporting. The extended radiographic roles in this programme will offer a bridging capacity for diagnostic imaging services in the country.  
Training will focus on the teaching and education of a wide range of attributes, beliefs, concepts as they apply to the care of various age groups. It is against this background that human physiological and sociological concepts will be key in the teaching and learning processes. It is believed that the radiographers graduating from this University shall articulate at both the national and international levels in the development of guidelines for radiation medicine.
