BME 1501: Special Topics
Credits: 1
Student led special topic courses which vary by semester
PHYS 3995: Research
Credits: 3
A research project on a topic in physics carried out under the supervision of a faculty member culminating in a written report. May be taken more than once. (S-SS) Prerequisite: Instructor permission.
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 4995: Biomedical Engineering Advanced Projects
Credits: 1–3
A year-long research project in biomedical engineering conducted in consultation with a department faculty advisor; usually related to ongoing faculty research. Includes the design, execution, and analysis of experimental laboratory work and computational or theoretical computer analysis of a problem. Requires a comprehensive report of the results. Prerequisite: third- or fourth-year standing, and instructor permission.
BME 8783: Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Credits: 3
Advanced physics and applications of magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy will be covered. Upon completion of this course, the student will understand the factors that affect the MRI signal, and will know how these factors can be exploited to image or measure various aspects of physiology with MR. Prerequisites: BME 8782 Magnetic Resonance Imaing and MATLAB experience.
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.
PHYS 9999: PhD Thesis Non-Topical Research
Credits: 1–12
For doctoral dissertation, taken under the supervision of a dissertation director.
