This survey course will cover the basic physical, biochemical, computational and engineering principles underlying current medical imaging techniques including: magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, radionuclide production and radiochemistry, optical imaging, X-ray computed tomography and ultrasound. The goal of the course will be to provide students with a broad knowledge of the concepts and implementation strategies of various imaging methods relevant in current research and clinical practice. Practical applications will be used to illustrate the main themes of the course. Tours of the Biomedical Imaging Core Facility and other imaging laboratories will augment the formal course material. At the end of the course students will be able to identify appropriate imaging strategies for clinical research and have a working knowledge of the major techniques available to the investigator.
