HLTH 434 INTRODUCTION TO BIOMEDICAL IMAGING (4) [top]

Three hours lecture and two hours lab activity per week

Prerequisite: BIOL 210 or PHYS 200

The course will present an overview of biomedical images and imaging systems. The fundamental concepts used in several imaging modalities (such as projection radiography, mammography, DEXA, computed tomography, ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging) will be examined: the emphasis will be on an intuitive and descriptive presentation of the main components of these systems. Image formation and reconstruction will be addressed. The resulting clinical images will be correlated with the underlying structure and function of the organs, and the diagnostic utility and limitations of the images will be considered.

Same as PHYS 434, BIOL 434
