ABOUT THE COURSE:
This course attempts to provide an introduction to the different commonly-used medical imaging systems. Although there are several courses and textbooks available from medical physics background, there are only few materials that treat the subject from a system’s perspective, which is the view point taken here. This course will be thought at a level where the students from different engineering branches may find it useful. After the initial introduction and review modules, the different modalities can be taken as a stand-alone-module, and for each the physics, instrumentation, reconstruction and Image quality will be discussed.
INTENDED AUDIENCE : 7th-8th semester students from UG from Biomedical Engineering (BME) and other engineering programs (e.g., EE, ME, CSE, BT,etc.)
PRE-REQUISITES : Engineering students from most core branch will be ready to take it in 6th-8th semester as they would have completed signals and systems and linear algebra.
INDUSTRY SUPPORT : Most Medical imaging industry, MNC and otherwise, will recognize the value of this course
