Ali Mohammad Ibrahim Al-radaideh

Assistant Professor
Medical Imaging
The Hashemite University


Dr. Ali Al-Radaideh graduated from the Hashemite University with a first class (Excellent) BSc degree in Radiography in 2003 and worked as a radiographer at Ibn Al-Haitham hospital-Amman for two years before he returns back to academia as a lab technician at the Hashemite University. In 2006, he went on to obtain his MSc and PhD in Medical Imaging from the UK. He received his MSc in Medical imaging from Aberdeen University in 2007 (with commendation) and his PhD in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) from the University of Nottingham in 2010 (Sir Peter Mansfield MR center SPMMRC). Dr. Al-Radaideh joined the Hashemite University as an assistant professor in February 2011, and he is now the head of medical imaging department and the vice dean of the faculty of allied health sciences at the Hashemite University.
