Teaching Medical Physics
The Institute of Physics's Medical Physics Group has produced a set of teaching materials which can be used to teach medical physics at GCSE/Standard level in schools. Much of the material is appropriate to use for A-level medical physics options.
The Institute's Teaching Medical Physics resources, that include Positron Emission Tomography, Gamma Cameras, Electrocardiagrams, X-ray Imaging, Ultrasound, Pulse Oximeters and Magnetic Resonance Imaging, consist of presentations, teachers' notes, student worksheets and videos from the Institute of Physics, Schools and Colleges Lecture 2011, "From X-rays to Anti-matter, The Science of Seeing Inside Your Body".
The other files contain lessons as Powerpoint presentations and other material aimed at helping teachers to teach science with examples from medical physics. The presentations can be used as free-standing lessons at GCSE level (on the electromagnetic spectrum, radioactivity and ultrasound), or parts of the presentations may be used at A level or earlier, or for particular topics such as the Doppler effect, radiation safety or waves.
