BME 513 Imaging Methods in Medicine
An introduction to the basic principles and technological aspects of medical imaging. Emphasis of the
course is on computed transmission and emission tomography, magnetic resonance, and ultrasound
imaging. These methods are developed and contrasted in terms of how the imaging information is
generated, detected, and processed, and how different hardware configurations and other factors limit
image quality. The relative diagnostic potential of the imaging methods are also discussed in relation
to the future prospects of each of the methods.
