Course unit content

The first part of lectures is related to the definition of ionizing radiations with particular reference to the production of X-rays and to the production of radiation emitted during radioactive decays.
The second part of the course is devoted to the discussion of the ionizing radiation interaction with matter. In particular, it will be explained the interactions of X-ray, gamma photons, heavy charged particles, light charged particles and neutrons with matter. The third part of the course covers applications with particular reference to biomedical and industrial diagnostic techniques. Applications also in health care concerning radiotherapy with LINAC, hadrontherapy and Neutron therapy are presented.
