This new gateway course will provide an introduction to the physics, technologies, and biological considerations associated with modern imaging and diagnostic technologies. Physics underlying image formation and the interaction of biological tissue with associated energies will be emphasized. Specific modalities to be examined will include x-ray, nuclear imaging, ultrasound, optical tomography, MRI and mass spectrometry.

Topics Covered:
Tentative:
Overview/Math Foundations/Energy-Matter Interactions.
Physiological Limitations of Energy Exposure.
Projection Tomographic Concepts (X-ray/CT).
Emission Tomographic Concepts (PET/SPECT).
Reflection Tomography (US/Optical).
Diffusion Tomographic Concepts (Optical).
Resonance Tomographic Concepts (MRS/MRI).
Mass Spectrometry.

Prerequisites:
None specified; contact instructor or department to discuss if you are unsure whether you have the necessary background and skills.
