(Molecular) Imaging Engineering
Full course description
This course provides you with overview of specialized imaging techniques, such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), radiography, nuclear imaging (SPECT, PET), ultrasound, (mass) spectrometry, optical computed tomography, electron microscopy, fluoroscopy and contrast enhanced imaging. Attention is paid to the underlying physical and chemical principles of the imaging techniques, including imaging optics, as well as the methods of data collection for image reconstruction. You learn to perform basic calculations with the fundamental equations of the various techniques. Furthermore, you are able to recognise typical artefacts, noise, distortions of the images and relate them to the underlying principles as well as indicate measures or propose alternative techniques to overcome these.
