A Catalyst article about careers using radiography in medical procedures. The article looks at a typical working day for a radiographer, the types of radiography used, how to become a radiographer and the qualifications available.
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.
Three PowerPoint lessons are available on ultrasound, the electromagnetic spectrum and radioactivity. The presentations can be used as free-standing lessons at GCSE level. Parts of the presentations may be used at A level or earlier for topics such as the Doppler effect, radiation safety or waves.
Written for the Association for Science Education (ASE) in 1995 to celebrate the centenary of the discovery of X-rays by Röntgen, this book contains units of study for Post-16 students on subjects such as the applications of X-rays, ultrasound and magnetic resonance.
This video, from the Institute of Physics (IOP), shows medical scientists at work using a variety of sophisticated devices which use principles of physics to investigate what is happening inside the body.
The video is presented as a whole and, for ease of use, in four sections:X-rays;CT scanning; Pulse oximetry;and Ultrasound
