Medical Radiation Science 2 Nuclear Med (MRSC5040)
UNIT OF STUDY
This unit of study is the second of three units which cover the physical principles of the appropriate use of ionizing radiation and quality management in diagnostic radiography. It builds on the foundations in radiation physics established in Medical Radiation Science 1 and introduces the key topics of radiation biology/radiation protection and tomographic image reconstruction. It also forms the basis for a more detailed study of the instrumentation, calibration and quantitative methods relevant to the medical radiation sciences, which are introduced in the discipline specific topics in this unit and expanded upon in Medical Radiation Science Radiography 3.
