RAD156 Radiation Production, Characteristics & Imaging Equipment
This course will cover the basics of radiography related physics and imaging equipment. Students will learn physics concepts, principles of radiation production, equipment operation, and atomic interactions. Topics also include electromagnetic radiation, electricity, magnetism, electromagnetism, radiation generators/circuitry, the basis of the x-ray imaging system and x-ray production. Upon successful course completion students will be able to explain the conditions necessary for the production of x-rays, x-ray circuitry, the x-ray tube, and x-ray and matter interactions.
