MED PHYS 770: The Physics of Applied Medical Imaging

Instructor: H. Peng

Term: 1

Course Outline: Download

  • The physical principles of two of the main imaging modalities in current clinical practice, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Ultra Sound (US) will be introduced from a medical physics perspective. It will be explained how in one case quantum mechanics and nuclear spins, and sound waves in the other, can be manipulated to generate clinically relevant images. Both modules of the course will entail a laboratory component where students will see the direct application of the physical principles through hands-on experience with MRI and US apparatus.
