Welcome to the home page of
31545 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 2017, 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, auditorium 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
A number of international leading experts in
medical imaging will also give guest lectures, and the
course includes visit to radiology departments along
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.
