Synopsis

This unit will introduce a range of medical imaging technologies currently used in health care, covering aspects of technical design, medical image analysis, systems integration and emerging technologies. It introduces students to the wide range of imaging modalities with an emphasis on the design and technical development of each modality. Future needs on medical imaging in health care and emerging medical imaging technologies will be covered. Image analysis and visualisation in the context of image guided therapy, image guided surgery, and virtual reality based simulation will also be covered.

Objectives

To provide an introduction to medical imaging equipment and systems. To study medical imaging systems, including computational methods, analysis, design and performance requirements. To be able to evaluate future medical imaging systems. To become familiar with medical imaging equipment safety and regulation.
