The aim of this course is to give a brief overview of the physical concepts of various sources of energy, tissue properties, and image properties employed in medical imaging. Biophysics in Radiology course includes lectures about the structure of the atom, elementary nuclear physics, the nature of electromagnetic radiation, the interactions of radiation with matter, and the production of X rays as fundamentals to the understanding of the physics of medical imaging and radiation protection. Further, students will learn about the basic principles of computed tomography (CT), ultrasonography, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
