Subject syllabus:

1. Principles of radiography, units and definitions. 2. Basic characteristis of ionizing electromagnetic radiation (wavelength, X-ray radiation, gamma radiation, quantum fluctuations, X-ray and gamma radiation quality, absorption and dispersion of heterogenic radiation). 3. Sources (X-ray sources: high voltage generators, high voltage roentgen lamps, radiation power, mobile devices; gamma radiation sources). 4. Radiography techniques principles (radiation image and film pattern, filtration, intensifiers). 5. Types of recordings, evaluation methods. 6. Detectability of discontinuities (geometric fuzziness, innner fuzziness, measuring parameters selection, image distortion prevention, detection hloubky vady). 7. Radiography of bodies with varying thickness. 8. Application (seam testing, casts, constructions, other application possibilities). 9. Special radiographic techniques. 10. The principles of ionizing radiation protection and health safety on X-ray working places.
