Degree Course Characteristics

Radiologicka fyzika Ing 06 The degree course is concerned with applications of ionizing radiation and radionuclides to radiodiagnostics, radiotherapy, and nuclear medicine. The graduate is fully qualified for the health profession of radiological physicist. The course structure offers a body of courses on mathematics, physics, and information sciences and courses covering in depth nuclear physics, physics of ionizing radiation, and detection and dosimetry of ionizing radiation with a focus on healthcare. The degree course gives a detailed overview of the physical and technological principles of modern imaging techniques used in medicine, and other radiotherapeutic devices. Because of the orientation of the degree programme towards healthcare, it also introduces courses on medical fields e.g. anatomy, physiology, and human biology.

To guarantee close contacts with the latest trends in the field incorporated into the programme, the degree thesis on a topical issue is done in cooperation with excellent Czech scientific institutions. Graduates have a broad overview of the principles and health legislation on radiation protection and handling ionizing radiation sources. Traditionally, the degree course lays considerable emphasis on students ´ independent science-oriented work resulting in high degree of individual autonomy and adaptability. Graduates are ready to apply for positions of radiological physicists in hospital divisions (also referred to as wards) of radiodiagnostics, nuclear medicine, and radiotherapy, or directly in divisions of medical physics or radiation protection. In cooperation with medical doctors and other medical staff graduates may conduct therapeutic and diagnostic procedures, in particular in the physical and instrumentation framework. Deep knowledge of the physical principles of radiation protection and legislation makes graduates eligible for jobs in nuclear safety and radiation protection.

The degree course – if followed by the indispensable clinical practice and post-master training - enables graduates to qualify for Medical Physics Experts in radiodiagnostics, nuclear medicine, or radiotherapy.

The degree course is compatible with the standards and recommendations of the European Union for medical physicists (see Directive RP 174). The aim of the degree course on Radiological Physics is to educate students for the health profession of radiological physicists responsible for healthcare physics and instrumentation for radiodiagnostics, nuclear medicine, and radiotherapy.

Graduate´s Profile

Radiologicka fyzika Ing 04 Graduate will obtain the knowledge of advanced disciplines of nuclear and radiation physics, deepened by the knowledge of applications of radiation to medicine, i.e. dosimetry, radiation protection, radiobiology, and detectors of ionizing radiation.

Graduates mastered practical skills indispensable for the profession of radiological physicist, such as calibration of modern medical sources of radiation and diagnostic instrumentation, and tests of relevance to the Atomic Law and Decree on Radiation Protection.

Graduates are prepared to perform the health profession of radiological physicist pursuant to Law No.96/2004 Coll as amended , because on graduation they have obtained the professional competence.
