Examines disease presentation and identification as seen in medical images; use of contrast enhancement methods in various image modalities; disease analysis, modern diagnostic imaging methods, and diagnostic indicators using various imaging techniques. Prerequisite: B STR 540; CONJ 585, or equivalent courses.
This course will provide the student an introduction to Medical Imaging from the radiologists' perspective. Specially, we will cover:
1. Review of real medical cases with radiological workup to provide an introduction to the Medical Imaging field (Radiology).
2. Compare different imaging modalities (Ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Computed Tomography, Conventional Radiography) with their advantages, limitations and recent advances.
3. We will incidentally comment about applied physics but we will not systematically review medical imaging physics. We will not review all the systems and certainly not all the pathology, just some examples of clinical cases.
