Traditional medical and ecological imaging systems
FEKT-NKZSAcad. year: 2015/2016
The physical and technical aspects of medical and ecological direct synthesis imaging systems technology. The basic of general imaging theory, the principles of imaging data acquisition, processing and analysing, quality evalution of imaging systems. General analogue and digital imaging system. Infrared imaging systems, convention x-ray imaging systems, digital radiography systems, planar gamma imaging systems. The system approach to imaging systems construction with respect to information transport from surrounding environment to human with the aim surrounding and object diagnostic.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students will learn about general theory of imaging process and application of this theory to construction of different types of imaging systems, about physical limits of technology and methods of quality evaluation.
The subject knowledge on the Bachelor´s degree level is requested.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Techning methods include lectures, computer laboratories and practical laboratories. Course is taking advantage of e-learning (Moodle) system. Students have to write a single project/assignment during the course.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
Requirements for completion of a course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every.
Language of instruction
General analogue and digital imaging system. Infrared imaging systems, convention x-ray imaging systems, digital radiography systems, planar gamma imaging systems.
The aim of the topic is to introduce students to general theory of imaging evaluation and elaboration of image information, general properties of imaging signals, general principles of image formation, technology of different imaging systems and quality evaluation of different medical and ecological direct synthesis imaging systems (not using reconstruction algorithms).
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.
