Module: Medical Imaging Systems
|Medical Imaging Systems||Lecture||4||Summer Semester|
Dr. Michael Grass
Recommended Previous Knowledge:
- Describe the system configuration and components of the main clinical imaging systems;
- Explain how the system components and the overall system of the imaging systems function;
- Explain and apply the physical processes that make imaging possible and use with the fundamental physical equations;
- Name and describe the physical effects required to generate image contrasts;
- Explain how spatial and temporal resolution can be influenced and how to characterize the images generated;
- Explain which image reconstruction methods are used to generate images;
Describe and explain the main clinical uses of the different systems.
Students are able to:
- Explain the physical processes of images and assign to the
systems the basic mathematical or physical equations required;
- Calculate the parameters of imaging systems using the mathematical or physical equations;
- Determine the influence of different system components on the spatial and temporal resolution of imaging systems;
- Explain the importance of different imaging systems for a number of clinical applications;
Select a suitable imaging system for an application.
- Understand which physical effects are used in medical imaging;
- Decide independently for which clinical issue a measuring system can be used.
