RAD 104 - Radiologic Physics


The concepts introduced will include an understanding of the principles of physics required in the electrical production of x-rays and the physics principles used in image acquisition techniques.  The student will also review x-ray interaction with matter and have a thorough understanding of the x-ray imaging system. 

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the properties of x-rays.
  • Critique the components of an x-ray imaging system.
  • Analyze the production of x-rays and various characteristics.
  • Explain ionization and the results of ionization during exposure to x-rays.
  • Differentiate between  x-ray production, emission and  interaction with matter.

Prerequisite(s): Completion of RAD 101; completion of MAT 120.
