Medical Radiation Physics

The course will cover the physics of ionizing and non-ionizing radiations encountered in medicine, including the physics of ionizing their production, integration with matter and detection. Of primary interest will be X and Y radiations, although particulate radiation (i.e. electrons) and long wavelength electromagnetic radiation (i.e. U.V., I.R. and microwave) will be discussed. The effects of these radiations on biological systems and the relatedtopic of radiation protection will be introduced. cr 3
