Student Learning Outcomes

Course Name: Fluoroscopy and Radiobiology
Course Number: RAD 31
Course Objectives:
  • The student will identify the structure and function of the image intensifier.
  • The student will identify radiation induced chemical reactions, potential biologic damage, & factors influencing radiation response/radiosensitivity of cells .
  • The student will identify the components of the fluoroscopy unit, to include the image intensifier, viewing/recording system as well as their functions in the fluoroscopy system.
  • The student will describe how radiation causes deterministic effects.
  • The student will describe how radiation causes late biologic effects.
  • The student will describe the principles of cellular biology and and identify specific cells from most radiosensitive to least radiosensitive.
  • The student will identify methods to measure radiation response and use a dose response curve to study the relationship between radiation dose levels an the degree of biologic response.
