Fields of study the course is directly associated with
Course objectives
The student will understand fundamental principles of thermodynamics mechanics of fluids, physical nature of sound and ultrasound (including principles of ultrasound diagnostics), electromagnetic field and electromagnetic radiation spectrum, origin and interactions of X-rays (including medical applications and devices), principle of MRI, biological effects of ionising radiation and radiotherapy principle (incl. related devices), radioactivity and dosimetry – main methods of nuclear medicine, lasers. This course is designed to help the students they have to repeat medical biophysics.
Learning outcomes
After finishnig the course the student will better understand fundamental principles of thermodynamics, mechanics of fluids, physical nature of sound and ultrasound (principles of ultrasound diagnostics), electromagnetic field and radiation spectrum, origin and interactions of X-rays (medical applications and devices), principle of MRI, biological effects of ionising radiation and radiotherapy principle (incl. related devices), radioactivity and dosimetry – main methods of nuclear medicine, lasers.
