BME 4783: Medical Imaging Modalities
Credits: 3
An overview of modern medical imaging modalities with regard to the physical basis of image acquisition and methods of image reconstruction. Topics cover the basic engineering and physical principles underlying the major medical imaging modalities: x-ray (plain film, mammography, and computed tomography (CT)), nuclear medicine (positron-emission tomography (PET) and single-photo-emission computed tomography (SPECT)), ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Prerequisite: BME 3310 or ECE 3750, or instructor permission.
BME 8999: Master's Research
Credits: 1–12
Master's Research
BME 9999: Dissertation
Credits: 1–12
Formal record of student commitment to doctoral research under the guidance of a faculty advisor. May be repeated as necessary.
