This course is an introduction to biomedical imaging and image analysis. In this course, the fundamental physical principles behind the four primary medical imaging modalities - computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound and nuclear medicine imaging - will be introduced. Introduction of each imaging modality will also include the clinical interpretation of images it produces. This course will also introduce medical image processing and new and emerging ways of using medical images for diagnosis and treatment.
