## Module content and teaching

###### Principal aims

To show how some of the physics learnt in a number of core modules may be applied in an important area outside of physics.

###### Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module, you should be able to explain the physical principles underlying the five areas of the application of physics to medicine covered in the module. You should be able to discuss the advantages and drawbacks of each of these therapeutic or investigative techniques and have some understanding of the current research into ways in which they might be improved.
