Course Detail
Course Components:
This course is primarily intended for upper undergraduate and non-imaging track graduate students who desire introductory exposure and hands-on experience in imaging tools and skills commonly used in today's biomedical research and development. Topics covered include microscopy, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and image analysis software packages. The course features a series of laboratory modules where students participate in aspects such as design, carrying out, and analysis of realistic imaging experiments. Students interested in more in-depth technical coverage of the physics and engineering principles of modern diagnostic imaging, like CT, MRI, positron emission tomography, and ultrasound should also or alternatively consider BIOEN 6401 Medical Imaging Systems.
