Medical Health Physics - MS Degree

From Radiological Sciences

Medical Health Physics Curriculum M.S. Plan

Image: HealthPhysicsBanner.png

Medical Health Physics pertains to (1) the safe use of x rays, gamma rays, electron and other charged particle beams of neutrons or radionuclides and of radiation from sealed radionuclide sources for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, except with regard to the application of radiation to patients for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes and (2) the instrumentation required to perform appropriate radiation surveys.
