    Interventional Radiology I

    Basic concepts of Interventional Radiology (IR) will be discussed including vascular anatomy and pathology, as well as imaging techniques commonly utilized in IR. In addition to concepts, the imaging methods, supplies, equipment, and devices supporting diagnostic and interventional image guided vascular procedures are introduced. Vascular surgery correlation with surgical options will be introduced the course. 14/FA:Meets everyother week starting 9/2

    Radiation Protection & Biology

    This course explores the principles and methods of radiation protection, health physics units, measurement, and dose-limiting regulations for occupationally and non-occupationally exposed individuals; radiation surveys; techniques and decontamination methods; monitoring of radioactive waste, radiation dose measurements, and radionuclide accountability; special topics, including precautions with brachytherapy patients, with patients receiving therapeutic amounts of radionuclides, and in management of accidentally contaminated individuals. This course will also overview the genetic and somatic effects of ionizing radiation. Mechanisms of interaction from the subcellular level to the organism will be presented. Risk versus benefit of radiation exposure to occupational workers as well as patients will be discussed. The emphasis of the course will be an understanding of the theory of radiobiology and how this translates into radiation protection practices. 2 credit hours. Prerequisites: BI 105-Anatomy & Physiology I, CH 101-Intro/Chemistry I, and PY 101-Intro Physics for Health Sciences, or equivalents
