BME 732 Medical Imaging

Credits: (3-0) 3

This course covers the physics of the major modalities commonly used in medical imaging. Also covered are the various principles and methods of constructing an image from the physical interactions of energy with living tissues, and the influence of image quality of the different modalities. Medical imaging systems to be analyzed include conventional X-ray, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine (PET and SPECT), and ultrasound. Each of these modalities will be introduced from basic physical principles to the process of image formation. The primary focus is on the physical principles, instrumentation methods, and imaging algorithms; however, the medical interpretation of images, and clinical, research and ethical issues are also included where possible to give students a deeper understanding of the medical imaging field.
