The first segment of this program
explains the components of x-ray production, including x-ray tubes, generators,
generator circuit design, timing the x-ray exposure, and factors that affect
x-ray emission. The second segment examines the factors that influence the
biological response to ionizing radiation in both diseased and healthy tissues.
This program specifically targets
radiologic technologists and nuclear medicine technologists. Radiologists,
cardiologists, other technologists, and medical personnel concerned with
ionizing radiation also may benefit from viewing this program.
