Summary

The subject acquaints with the basic types of instrumentation in radiotherapy, the physical principles of their function, the principles of proper operation and maintenance necessary for quality assurance. Current legislation on radiotherapy with emphasis on operational stability tests and long-term stability. Basics of metrological procedures applied in radiotherapy. The course provides students with basic orientation in the field of instrumentation used in radiodiagnostics with focus on design, characteristics, technical solutions, principles and clinical use of instrumentation in radiodiagnostics. Students will get a basic idea of mechanical, electrical, electronic and optical processes taking place in different types of radiodiagnostic devices. Orientation in the technical parameters of the instruments. Detailed understanding of the connections between the parameters that are selectable on the control panels of the devices and the events determined by them.
