I.C. Information technology, statistics and physics applied to radiological sciences
(objectives)
It is an essential objective of this teaching to learn the knowledge of the essential elements of medical statistics which include: parameters for descriptive analysis (average, median, fashion and frequency measurement of the distribution of categorical variables), parameters for the analysis of variability (variance , standard deviation and confidence intervals) and elements of inferential statistics (use and interpretation of the most common statistical tests), introduction to regression techniques. The course aims to provide the student with the skills necessary to understand the key role that Information Technology (IT) plays for today's society and, in particular, in the technicalhealth professions. The course aims to provide the student with the skills necessary to understand the role played by information systems, illustrating the development process of these systems and focusing attention on data management systems. The aim of the Basic Physics and Radiation Physics course within the integrated course of Computer Science, Statistics and Physics applied to Radiological Sciences is to provide students with the knowledge on the foundations of applied physics necessary for the performance of their future activity. In particular, the understanding of the physical principles underlying medical physics and the functioning of medical instrumentation will be addressed. At the end of the course, students will know the fundamental concepts of application of the scientific method to the study of biomedical phenomena (choice and measurement of parameters, evaluation of errors), they will be able to describe the physical phenomena of complex systems using appropriate mathematical tools, they will know the scientific bases of medical procedures and the operating principles of equipment commonly used for diagnostics and therapy.
