RADT 206 - Radiologic Technology III
Introduction to radiobiology and pathology. The effect of radiation on human biology, the history of human and experimental exposures to radiation and the calculations of effects of radiation are presented. Review of Radiation Safety Practices are reviewed as part of the objectives in radiobiology. Radiation therapy as it relates to radiobiology is introduced. Quality assurance and quality control are reviewed. Identification of pathologies impacting the body systems and commonly diagnosed via routine radiography are discussed. Students participate in completing simulated Mock registries exam. PREREQUISITE(S): RADT 102 or consent of program coordinator. COREQUISITE(S): RADT 211 and RADT 224 . Two hours each week. Formerly RT 206.
2 semester hours
