PHYS5343 - Physics in the Field of Medicine

Credits: 3
This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to exploring biophysics, inte-grating the traditional fields of physics, chemistry, engineering, biology, and medicine. Topics in medical physics include biomechanics (including sports med-icine and prosthesis technologies); modern imaging techniques; treatment practices, such as heat therapy, electrotherapy, and various types of radiation. The emphasis is on how physics has improved the diagnosis and treatment of illness and injury, emerging technologies, and their implications.
