DESCRIPTION:
This course emphasizes the application of physical phenomena in medical radiography. Topics include magnetism, nuclear reactions and radioactive decay, mechanisms of attenuation and their effects on radiation production. The elements of image production and quality are discussed relevant to quantum noise and spatial resolution. The physics of the x-ray generator is also discussed. Students cover the use of solid-state physics in modern imaging equipment. This course requires the students to perform precise measurement, graph plotting and data interpretation.
