BIOM 783 - Medical Image Modalities


Studies engineering and physical principles underlying the major imaging modalities such as X-ray, ultrasound CT, MRI, and PET. A comprehensive overview of modern medical imaging modalities with regard to the physical basis of image acquisition and methods of image reconstruction. Students learn about the tradeoffs, which have been made in current implementations of these modalities. Considers both primarily structural modalities (magnetic-resonance imaging, electrical-impedance tomography, ultrasound, and computer tomography) and primarily functional modalities (nuclear medicine, single-photon-emission computed tomography, positron-emission tomography, magnetic-resonance spectroscopy, and magnetic-source imaging).
