Review of energy & matter, basic concepts of the atom and its structure, and how these related to basic x-ray production. Review of the EM (electromagnetic sprectrum), basic x-ray production, x-ray interactions with matter, the control of scattered radiation, and how various technical factors affect x-ray exposure. Review and use of radiologic units. Review of basic electrical production and this relates to various components of the x-ray circuit in the production of a x-ray exposure. 3 hrs. lecture weekly.
