Medical Physics (6 ECTS)

This course covers the following topics: mechanics of the human body, blood pressure and the cardiovascular system, electric signals from the body, hearing and speech, interaction and biological effects of ionizing radiation, basic principles of radiation protection, diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine, radiotherapy, ultrasounds, magnetic resonance imaging and medical lasers.

Learning outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be familiar with the aspects of physics which are related to the human body, as well as the diagnostic and therapeutic applications of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation in medicine. Hence, the course will be a physics foundation for their medical degree curriculum as well as for postgraduate medical training.
