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.
