Principles of projection radiography, fluoroscopy, tomography, ultrasound and nuclear sources; biomagnetic imaging. Source and object; recorder resolution and noise; scatter and attenuation. Ultrasound techniques and instrumentation, including physics of ultrasound, transducers, ultrasound imaging, hemodynamics, Doppler techniques.
1. Demonstrate an understanding of the underlying physics of the following imaging modalities: x-ray, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, planar nuclear imaging, single-photon emission computed tomography, and positron emission tomography. 2. Demonstrate an understanding of the degree of invasiveness of each modality (including quantification of radiation dose, where applicable). 3. For the same modalities, demonstrate an understanding of the image-formation process, including signal-to-noise ratio, spatial resolution, temporal resolution (where applicable), and the mathematics and implementation of reconstruction algorithms (where applicable). 4. For the same modalities, demonstrate an understanding of the technology required to build devices that make possible clinical use. 5. Demonstrate an understanding of the clinical applications of the modalities.
