Basics Of Radiology - Module 1 - Physics And Optics

  • : Online

This is the first course in a series on the principles of radiology.

It is not possible to teach all the patterns of radiology.

The aim of the series is to teach some simple radiological principles and to show how they can be used to reach a diagnosis by a process of logic.

The series will take you through the basics of how an X-ray or CT image is produced and how to interpret the images.

This module covers - 1. Physics and optics

Do not skip this because a general understanding of how the machines work will give a better understanding of why you can (or can't) see a particular structure on an X-ray which are commonly requested
