The act of imaging itself, particularly in X-rays, requires extensive knowledge of the nature of the imaging tool used and the way it interacts with different human tissues. It is through that understanding that adequate images can be obtained; images that provide the largest amount of data with the least hazard to the patient.

- Explain the image quality and radiation dosage.
- Define the interaction of X-ray with matter and its effects.
- Identify the biology of radiation.
