Welcome to the home page of
22485 Medical Imaging Systems!

On this home page you can find information about the course and you can download both the course plan for the autumn 2023, the data for the different exercises and assignments, and various programs used for demonstrations during the lectures.

The lectures will take place in building 349, room 205 on Mondays and Thursdays. The exercises are performed in the E data bar in building 341, ground floor, room 015.

Aim: The purpose of the course is to give a thorough introduction to all modern diagnostic imaging systems. This includes the primary systems as X-ray, computer tomography (CT), ultrasound, and magnetic resonance (MR) as well as PET, PET/CT, and SPECT. Both the physics behind the imaging will be taught, as well as the signal processing performed in the systems. A number of computer exercises must be made during the course.

A number of international leading experts in medical imaging will also give guest lectures, and the course includes visit to radiology departments along with demonstrations.

The grading in the course is based on two projects about CT reconstruction and ultrasound and an oral exam. For both a report must be made and handed in during the course. The reports, exercises, and reading material are discussed during the oral exam.

Contents: Physics of ultrasound imaging. B-mode imaging. Signal processing in flow estimation systems (Doppler Systems). X-ray physics and imaging. CT scanning and reconstruction. MR scanning and reconstruction. PET, PET/CT and SPECT scanning. Molecular Imaging. Implementation of signal processing. Exercises. Report writing. Oral exam.


The latest addition to News is from August 29 on signal processing reading material and the groups.
