Physics modules

Presented by RSNA and the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), the RSNA/AAPM Online Physics Modules explore important physics concepts identified in the AAPM curriculum.

These self-guided modules are designed to supplement physics education during radiology residency and assist with continued self-study. Modules are not intended to be the primary or sole source of information for residents preparing for board exams.

Physics modules are available to RSNA members and AAPM members as a membership benefit. RSNA membership is free for residents and fellows.

Module topics

  • Fundamentals
  • Basic imaging science and technology
  • Radiation biology
  • Radiation protection
  • Projection x-ray imaging
  • Fluoroscopy
  • Computed tomography
  • Ultrasound
  • Magnetic resonance
  • Nuclear medicine

Developed by a team that includes at least one physicist and one radiologist, the modules undergo ongoing peer review to continually improve content and quality.
