Medical Radiation Physics
This course covers the physics of ionizing and non-ionizing radiations encountered in medicine, including their production, their interactions with matter, and their detection. Emphasis is placed on the clinical use of X-rays, gamma rays, particles such as electrons and protons and the calculation of the associated absorbed dose as the clinical relevant parameter. PREREQ: MATH 1036, PHYS 1006/7 or PHYS 1206/7 or equivalent. (lec 3) cr 3.
