Medical system is essential for our health and lives. Especially, medical imaging system which can create non-invasively images of inside our bodies is remarkable. In this course, you will learn about ultrasound, X-ray, X-ray CT, MRI, PET, and OCT. Fundamental skills about medical imaging system, elemental technical, clinical applications will be obtained.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Acquire knowledge related to the fundamentals of the medical imaging systems.
2) Acquire knowledge related to the practical use and application of the medical imaging system and ability to identify challenges.
MRI, Radiography, X-ray CT, Gamma Camera, SPECT, PET
