    Radiographers have radiography degrees. You don't need a medical degree to become one.

    You're confusing them with Radiologists, which is a medical specialism and yes, you need a medical degree to become a radiologist.

    Radiography is a degree in its own right and I think you can get in with maths and physics - at City university of London at least

    Have a look at this. If you're interested in healthcare science this is a route via a regular 3 year BSc rather than a medical degree.

    Doesn't seem to require biochem at A level either, according to University of Cumbria course page, one of the unis that offer it.

    Hope this is helpful
