To inform Health Sciences students about the basics and working principles of the techniques commonly used in the clinic.
 
Programme OutcomesCTPOTOA
Upon successful completion of the course, the students will be able to :
PO - 1 : explain the concept of waves; classifies waves according to their physical properties.
PO - 2 : Explain sound, ultrasound and clinical applications by associating them with physics principles.
PO - 3 : Count electromagnetic waves, explains the clinical uses of microwave and infrared waves.
PO - 4 : Count ionizing electromagnetic waves, explains the physical principles of imaging techniques they are used in.
CTPO : Contribution to programme outcomes, TOA :Type of assessment (1: written exam, 2: Oral exam, 3: Homework assignment, 4: Laboratory exercise/exam, 5: Seminar / presentation, 6: Term paper), PO : Learning Outcome

 
Contents of the Course
The course includes the basic subjects of biomedical physics centering the concept of wave. The properties of mechanical and electromagnetic waves will be discussed. Studenst will have an understanding of the properties and applications of ultrasound, radio waves, infrared, laser light, flourescence, ultraviolet, x-ray and gamma rays. In this course, imaging techniques commonly used in the clinic and treatment methods related to the subjects will be examined together with the basic biophysics principles.
