Learning outcomes
The subject "Biophysics" contains the knowledge in physics and a specific curriculum focused on medical problems. Students obtain basic information about physical differences of individual methods and their biological effects. It informs about individual kinds of these methods and setups that are used for examining. Radiology acquaints with a skilled activity and problems of radiological branches. It gives basic information about a physical core of depictive radiological technologies and their potential risks on people. In addition to familiarizing with negative influences of diagnostic methods, it also deals with principles of indication of diagnostics methods, an effective preparation of clients to these examinations and even with nursing care in the whole investigation course.
