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.
