Radiation Biology (3)

Classification: Occupational

The purpose of this course is to provide the student with principles of radiation protection, and of cell radiation interaction. The student will demonstrate an awareness of his/her responsibility as a radiographer for radiation protection to patients, personnel and the public. Effective dose limits and regulatory involvement will be discussed along with radiation effects on cells and factors affecting cell response. The student will be made aware of the acute and chronic effects of radiation. Radiation Physics is recommended prior to this course. The course is a hybrid course that combines face to face instruction with Mosby's Radiography Online.
