RADDI 512 - Physics of Diagnostic Imaging: Imaging Modalities View Available Classes

★ 3 (fi 6)(EITHER, 3-0-0)

This course will discuss in detail the physics involved in the following imaging modalities: Radiography, Fluoroscopy, Conventional Tomography, Bone Densitometry, Mammography, Computed Tomography (CT), Nuclear Medicine, Ultrasound, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Prerequisites: Some fundamental physics of diagnostic imaging is required or consent of Department.


RADDI 514 - Image Processing and Analysis in Diagnostic Imaging View Available Classes

★ 3 (fi 6)(EITHER, 3-0-0)

The course aims to cover medical image processing and analysis techniques, including de-noising, registration, segmentation, 3D reconstruction, applicable in diagnostic imaging modalities such as ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Clinical examples in cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and brain imaging will be discussed. Prerequisite: Linear algebra and knowledge in MATLAB programming or consent of Department.


RADDI 521A - Physics of Nuclear Medicine Imaging View Available Classes

★ 1.5 (fi 6)(TWO TERM, 2-0-0)

This course investigates the physics involved in the field of clinical nuclear medicine imaging. Discussion of basic atomic theory (Bohr model), interaction of radiation with matter, radioactive decay, and production of radionuclides will be followed with assessment of radiation detection instrumentation (geiger counters, ionization detectors, gamma cameras). PET and SPECT performance and image quality parameters will be emphasized, along with NEMA standards for QA and AT. Calculation methodology for Internal Dosimetry will be presented, followed by a discussion of radiobiology. Prerequisite: Normally restricted to students in Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging. This course will also be offered to students, residents and fellows who have successfully completed RADDI 512 or with the consent of the Department.
