Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2023-2024.

After a brief overview of all major medical modalities: x-ray, CT, MRI, SPECT/PET, and US, this course will focus on the formulations of spatial encoding and image contrasts as exemplified in MRI. The inverse problem between detected signal and image source will be discussed for biomedical applications. The concepts of image resolution, image contrast, SNR, and scan time will be illustrated quantitatively from an engineering point of view.

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: functional knowledge and skills of linear algebra, calculus based physics, and knowledge of Fourier transformation.

Comments The students will attend field trips to the Cornell University MRI Facility. The students may also attend field trips to the Cornell University Hospital for Animals and Cayuga Medical Center (Weill Cornell Medical Center for students at NYC campus) to observe imaging in clinical practice, pending on hospital courtesies.
