RADI 223 - Radiobiology and Protection

1 CR
This course is intended to identify and justify the need to minimize unnecessary radiation exposure to humans. Students will review the principles of cellular biology and identify the sources of electromagnetic and particulate radiations. They will learn about radio sensitivity and the effects of ionizing radiation on human cells, tissues, and organs. Radiation units of measurement, as well as dose limits for both the public and the occupational worker will be presented. Students will learn how as radiologic technologists, they can employ various means to produce high quality diagnostic images at a dose as low as reasonably achievable.

Prerequisites & Requisites: Take RADI 211  with at least a grade of C.

Additional Information: Formal admission to the Radiography Program required.
