The course gives in-depth knowledge regarding biomedical imaging technologies and the information they give to medical professionals. The candidates will understand how these technologies are complementing each other. This course is taught by faculty at the University of Queensland and offered by edx.
These days imaging technologies are forming an important component of all developed economies' health budgets, the need for these advanced imaging technologies such as CT scans, MRIs, and X-rays during people’s life is increasing. The course Introduction to Biomedical Imaging provides a basic understanding of modern imaging modalities and biomedical imaging.
It also talks about the basic scientific principles under each modality; their key applications from cancers to neurological diseases. This course covers both general topics which are designed specifically for the general public and also covers advanced topics that would help the development of professionals in engineering, IT, and health industries.
Through this course, the candidates will also learn the clinical applications and technology and hardware used in computerised tomography, X-rays, PET and SPECT, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging. The candidates will have to take up quizzes which will help them learn the key points.
