Syfte

The aim of this course is for students to gain a basic understanding of the engineering aspects of both contemporary and state-of-the-art technologies used to create medical images. In addition the student is expected to gain an understanding of how such images are used by doctors to confirm and characterise a medical condition, as well as to assess response to treatment.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)

- describe the physical basis of a range of contemporary and state-of-the-art medical image formation technologies;

- describe and apply the techniques and algorithms used in these technologies to generate/form images;

- compare and contrast competing image formation algorithms;

- implement one or more of these algorithms in software; and

- describe applications of these technologies and explain their limitations.

Innehåll

This course covers the physical and engineering aspects of a range of contemporary and state-of-the-art technologies used for generating medical images. These include:

- X-ray imaging: Physics, technology, detectors, spectra, amplifiers, computerized tomography and image reconstruction.

- Nuclear tomographic imaging and positron emission tomography: Basic physics, technology, detectors and algorithms.

- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): Physics, technology, instrumentation, and image reconstruction algorithms.

- Ultrasound imaging: Physics, technology, instrumentation, and image reconstruction algorithms.

- Microwave tomography: Microwave systems, antennas, dielectric properties, contrast and optimisation algorithms.

The course also covers applications of these technologies including in virtual colonoscopy, breast cancer detection/imaging, cardiac imaging, and brain imaging.

Organisation

The course is organised as a number of lectures (including guest lectures given by industry and the health-care sector), laboratory sessions and a mandatory project.
