Supervisor:
Department of Dosimetry and Application of Ionizing Radiation
Synopsis:

Training in the field of radiological physics in X-ray diagnostics organized together with clinical partners. Overview of duties, activities and responsibilities of a radiological physicist. Intorduciton to the clinical environment and its specifications. Practical (dosimetric and/or other) routine tasks under the supervision of an experienced radiological physicist. Training examples: correct setup of the X-ray device (dental, panoramatic, radiographic, fluoroscopic, mammographic, CT), QA tests, image optimization, check of the developer, direct measurement of the patient dose (TL dosimetry), indirect measurement of the patient dose (ion chamber, DAP meter, semiconductor+recalculation), etc.

Requirements:

Required prerequisities are 16ZDOZ1, 16ZDOZ2, 16DETE, 16JRF1, 16JRF2.
