MRTY1036 is a Junior level unit designed specifically for students enrolled in the Bachelor of Applied Science (MRS) Diagnostics Radiography. It provides a basic knowledge and understanding of concepts in radioactivity and ultrasound, laying the foundation for understanding ultrasonic transducers, cyclotrons and radiation detectors. It also explores the effects of ionising and non-ionising radiation on biological systems, including implications for radiological protection.
