The subject acquaints students with principles of imaging with the help of computerized tomography. Assisting tools in CT examination of particular regions examined will be detailed. Preparation of patients for examination and procedures for administration of contrast media are described. The student is acquainted with post-processing data arrangement, data transfer and possibilities of filing. The students will master knowledge of the application of programmes of quality assurance and tests of operational stability in the field of CT imaging and of adhering to rules of radiation hygiene in CT examinations.

In the field of sonographic examinations the students are acquainted with principles of the origination of the sonographic image, use of B-, M-mode, colour Doppler analysis, harmonic imaging. Constructions of ultrasound instruments and differences in their equipment are described. Assisting components in sonographic imaging of particular organs and relevant sonographic anatomy are presented.
