Coursework combines principles of engineering and molecular and cellular biology with essential elements from physiology, anatomy, physics, computer science, and mathematics to provide a rigorous background for career development in industrial and academic environments.
The modular program is designed to allow individual students to work with their advisors to design a course of study based on the interests and career goals of the student. In-depth training on the fundamentals of image science is emphasized for all biomedical imaging students. The students should have one year background in linear systems and frequency domain analysis.
The first course in the series, Autumn 2011, is: Biomedical Imaging Systems, taught by Drs. Paul Kinahan and Ricky Wang
Synopsis of the Course:
Modalities covered include MRI, CT, ultrasound, nuclear, and optical imaging. For each modality the basic mechanisms are described, leading to a systems model of the imaging process.
Fundamental similarities between the imaging equations of different modalities will be stressed.
