Tomographic imaging systems
FEKT-NTZSAcad. year: 2018/2019
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.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students will learn about technology of individual imaging systems physical limits of construction, methods of quality evaluation and possibility of medical and ecological applications.
The subject knowledge on the Bachelor´s degree level in Math, Physics and Signal Processing is requested.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Techning methods include lectures (in case of low number of students are done by selfstudy), 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
Computed x-ray tomography (X-ray CT), magnetic resonance imaging systems (MRI), single photon (SPECT) and positron (PET)(double-photon) emission computed tomography imaging systems, ultrasound imaging systems.
The aim of the topic is to introduce students to physical principles and technology, quality evaluation and technical and physical limits of medical and ecological non-direct syntheses imaging systems (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.
