Dosimetry - Biological effects of radiation

·       Interaction of nuclear radiation with matter, direct and indirect interaction, RBE, LET and quality factor of the radiation

·       Transferred-absorbed energy dose definitions, dose measurement and units

·       Interaction of radiation in water (hydrolysis)

·       Buildings biological disasters (sub cellular level - cell - tissues - organs) directly and ulterior results. Modifying factors (physical and biological)

·       Newest fields in dosimetry (micro-dosimetry and nano-dosimetry, space dosimetry)

Medical Physics

·       Isotopes Production used in Medicine, Special requirements, isotope concentration and half-life (natural and biological half-life)

·       Diagnostic methods, static and dynamic tests (CT - MRI, γ-camera, SPECT, PET, PET-CT)

·       Computer imaging, detection of radiation (image formation, collimators, resolution of image, criteria method comparison)

·       Radiotherapy - Medical accelerators (construction-beam -produced reactions) Photon, electron and hadron therapy - Isotopes application (Brachytherapy)

Principles of radiation protection and international regulations
