XRayPhysics - Interactive Radiology Physics

Welcome! We designed this site for radiologists to gain a better understanding of radiology physics through interactive simulations and animations. Right now, we have topics on MRI physics, CT physics, X-ray physics, and Ultrasound physics. We try to focus on practical physics, concepts that actually impact radiation exposure and image quality. Most of these topics find their way into Board exams and similar tests, although some of the MR topics are above that level.

Browser compatibility: This site works best on the newest browsers, including mobile browsers. If you are using a browser without Java (e.g. on a mobile device), you will see images of the Java simulations.
