Medical Radiation Physics (MRTY1031)
UNIT OF STUDY
MRTY1031 is a Junior level unit designed specifically for students enrolled in the Bachelor of Applied Science (MRS) Diagnostic Radiography. It provides a basic knowledge and understanding of concepts in physics relevant to the use of ionising radiation in medicine - specifically X-rays. It presents an examination of the structure of matter, types of ionising radiation and their interactions with matter, all within the context of medical imaging and therapy.
