Medical Physics

  • Course level: Beginner


The Medical Physics study programmed mainly consists of the studies of individual, environmental, and substance exposure to radiation, focusing on the use of radiation for treatment and diagnosis of oncological diseases, and protection of individual and environment from unreasonable radiation.

This course presents the fundamental principles and objectives of health physics (radiation protection), the quantities of radiation dosimetry (the absorbed dose, equivalent dose, and effective dose) used to evaluate human radiation risks, elementary shielding calculations, and protection measures for clinical
