About Noha Hamza:
Despite the fact that I worked as a journalist and TV presenter for about 10 years of my life, I have always wished to work as a diagnostic radiographer. My application to study radiography at Teesside University was motivated by my previous university studies back in my country. I graduated from AL-Neelain University in Sudan in 2007 with a degree in Medical Physics. During that time, modules, like human anatomy, laser physics, method of radiation protection and Physics of diagnostic radiology were three of my study courses that I found to be absolutely fascinating. I then furthered my interest on radiography during my hospital training as Medical Physicist and was most interested in mechanism of operating medical equipment and the interaction with patients more than developing and testing equipment. After witnessing the impact that a radiographer could have on the outcome of a patient’s life and health, I saw that a career in radiography not only offered a career with an impact on those in need, but also a career in which I could directly see the effects of my work. A great interest in the imaging industry developed during my study in Teesside University, and the chance to study radiography at advance level is quite interesting. Because of everything I've learned in my studies about how important a profession like radiology is to our lives, I was eager to learn more about it, and acquire the skills needed to practise. During my placement in James Cook university hospital, I really liked the fast pace setting of Accident and Emergency, and I discovered that a radiographer needs to be able to work in a stressful environment, make independent decisions, and have a comprehensive understanding of human anatomy. As the result, I was certain that, becoming a radiographer was the best choice for me as it gave me a first-hand understanding of what it takes to be one.<br/>spending my training period in a place like James Cook hospital , one of the UK lead major trauma centre in which receive both adults and children with significant injuries , was an opportunity to perform a variety of x-ray imaging, spend a lot of time interacting with patients, and learn what training and skills would be useful for a career in this profession. Furthermore, in placement, I learned how to obtain high-quality diagnostic images and optimize the radiation dose at the same time. In addition, I have gained training and experience on using different image modalities. I had extensive rotas in mobile x ray, theatre, MRI, CT scan and ultrasound. I also experienced working on night shifts and weekends where skills like thinking on feet, decision making and working under pressure are essential. This experience taught me how I can make an accurate decisions independently. Beside, this experience helped me explore new abilities and adapt to changing circumstances. It also improved my recalling and attention to details skills. I value the importance of good communication skills to ensure I put my patients into ease and meet their requirements. For instance, I experienced working with patients with special needs such as dementia patients , patients with disabilities, mental health and hearing impairment during placement, and I was able to effectively communicate with them during radiology examinations. I believe my personality and skill sets are ideal for this career. I am companionate, punctual, enthusiastic and most of all, I have great sense of responsibility. Therefore, I believed that I can succeed as a radiographer and I am committed to contribute to the development of any organisation I work with.
