Course detail

Medical diagnostic devices

FEKT-CLDTAcad. year: 2019/2020

Principles of function and the description of construction of the diagnostics equipment and systems for sensing of the electrical and non elektrical quantities from organism (ECG,EEG,EMG, impedance measurement, blood pressure measurement, blod flow measurement). Fundamental principles of the medical imaging systems (X-ray systems, imaging by using of the magnetic resonance, gama imaging systems and, the ultrasound imaging systems). Principles of construction and using of the medical systems.
