Unit of study_

Medical Radiation Science 2 Radiography - MRSC5038

Year - 2020

This unit of study is the second of three units which cover the physical principles of the appropriate use of ionizing radiation and quality management in diagnostic radiography. It builds on the foundations in radiation physics established in Medical Radiation Science 1 and introduces the key topics of digital image processing, digital radiographic imaging systems, computed tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). It also forms the basis for a more detailed study of 3D tomographic multi-modality imaging systems and methods which are expanded upon in Medical Radiation Science Radiography 3. .
