Nuclear Cardiology Board Review Physics Course

Course Applications

The CBNC exam is approximately 30% physics. This online Nuclear Cardiology Physics Board Review Course provides a comprehensive review of the physics material required for the exam. This review course also contains board review type quizzes in a similar format to questions on the exam.

This course allows studies on time allotments acceptable to the user, in an environment comfortable to the student. Each physics lecture is accompanied by a quiz. An 85% pass rate on each quiz will consider the user proficient in that lecture. Quiz results are shown upon completion to explain correct and incorrect quiz answers. Quizzes may be taken multiple times, each with different questions to assure maximum user comprehension.

Course Material

  • Basic physics (atomic structures)
  • Basic physics as applied to clinical imaging (e.g., nuclides, isotopes and decay)
  • Electromagnetic Properties of Radiation (Background Radiation, wavelength formulas)
  • Basic physics as applied to clinical imaging (decay modes (Alpha, Beta, Gamma), high energy imaging)
