Pre-requisites

Background in the physical sciences equivalent to Level 2 Physics

Objectives

At the end of the module students will understand, in some detail, the underlying physical and mathematical bases behind the principal forms of imaging which are currently used in medicine.

Syllabus

In this module, all the principal forms of medical imaging are considered. The underlying physical principles are examined in some detail and the means by which these are exploited in the production of clinically useful images are described. The limitations which the physical principles impose are considered as are the constraints imposed by the requirements of minimising the hazard to the patient. Each form of imaging is set in its clinical context so that the relative merits of each form can be assessed.
