Synopsis:

The course covers the principles, design and properties of currently used medical imaging devices. We shall deal with 2D microscopic, X-ray and ultrasound imaging systems, including advanced topics such as Doppler ultrasound. We will also study tomographic (3D) imaging systems: computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) including functional MRI (fMRI) and nuclear imaging methods (PET,SPECT).
