Medical Imaging Systems

Course Description

The course aims to introduce the physics and principles of operation behind the major medical imaging systems including X-ray radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound (US) and nuclear medicine imaging (SPECT and PET). Image quality such as impulse response, signal-to-noise, resolution and its tradeoffs with system design for different imaging modalities will also be discussed.
