Diagnostic Radiology Imaging Physics Course
This course provides radiology residents with an understanding of the physical principles and theories involved in diagnostic imaging modalities. For each imaging modality, the image formation process along with important image quality metrics (noise, low-contrast resolution, spatial resolution, etc…) and their relation to image appearance are discussed. The course uses the AAPM curriculum and the RSNA web modules to provide clinical relevance and to aid each resident in preparing for the ABR board examination. Additionally, basic radiation safety, radiation biology, radiation protection, and radiation risk are discussed. The course objective is to provide the radiology resident with an understanding of current imaging technology and of the physical principles that drive image quality and radiation dose.
