XRT 125 - Image Production 2
This course is a continuation of Image Production 1. It will focus on the creation of image contrast, the relationship between contrast and penetrability, the production and control of scatter radiation, the effect of scatter radiation effect on contrast, technical factors and their effect on contrast, the effects of the use of various imaging modalities and the analysis and evaluation of technical principles on an image. One class hour. Two laboratory hours.
Prerequisites: XRT 111 and XRT 151; each with a grade of C or better.
