Course detail

Tomographic imaging systems

FEKT-NTZSAcad. year: 2015/2016

The physical and technical aspects of medical and ecological non-direct syntheses imaging systems technology: computed x-ray tomography (X-ray CT), magnetic resonance imaging systems (MRI), single photon (SPECT) and positron (double-photon PET) emission computed tomography imaging systems, ultrasound imaging systems. The systems approach to imaging systems construction with respect to information transport from surrounding environment to human with the aim surrounding and object diagnostic.
