RADT 120R : Radiation Physics & Imaging Equipment
This course explores and defines the fundamental principles of physics and electronics involved in the production, use and control of the various electromagnetic energies used in medical and diagnostic applications. Topics include electromagnetic waves, electricity and magnetism, electrical energy, power and circuits as they relate to radiography. It will discuss the components of radiographic equipment and how its work in the production of x rays. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate an understanding of basic principles of physics as they relate to the operation of radiographic equipment.
