Introduction and analysis of medical imaging technology including X-ray procedures, computed tomography, nuclear imaging techniques using single photon and positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound imaging techniques.
To understand the physical and technical principles underlying X-ray imaging, computed tomography, single photon and positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound and Doppler imaging techniques. The mathematical framework is developed to describe image encoding/decoding, point-spread function/modular transfer function, signal-to-noise ratio, contrast behavior for each of the methods. Matlab exercises are used to implement and study basic concepts.
The performance assessment is offered every session. Repetition possible without re-enrolling for the course unit.
Mode of examination
written 120 minutes
Additional information on mode of examination
Submitted exercise results are graded. These grades will be counted towards 20% of the final course grade at the end of term, if the student has submitted results of a minimum of 9 exercises and if exercise grades improve the final course grade.
This information can be updated until the beginning of the semester; information on the examination timetable is binding.
