RAD 202 - Fundamentals Of Radiobiology
Designed to provide fundamental information in the area of applied radiobiology. Course topics will include basic interactions of radiation and matter, biological effects, radiation dose, occupational and non-occupational dose equivalent limits, exposure monitoring and units of measurement.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
- Evaluate radiation safety on every patient using the ALARA principle
- Differentiate between the effect of radiation on an embryo, fetus, child and adult
- Assess the radiologic technologist’s responsibility in limiting patient exposure, repeating radiographs, shielding and effective communication
- Summarize how radiobiology applies to diagnostic radiology
Prerequisite(s): Completion of RAD 104 and RAD 106.
