PHY-213 - Radiologic Physics 13 credits
Topics covered are: basic mechanics, mass, force, work, momentum, electrostatics leading to fundamentals of electronics to produce photons. Laboratory exercises are related the specific topics and require graphing and writing. Special topics covered are: the nature of the photon, ionizing photons, the photoelectric effect, the Compton Effect, pair production and the secondary radiation produced by the primary effects. Attenuation characteristics and spectra are discussed. Use of software program using spread sheet required. Scientific Calculator required. Honors component with permission of instructor. This course is specifically designed to meet the physics requirement for students in the Diagnostic Medical Imaging program.
