**Course overview: **

This course introduces medical imaging
methods to senior undergraduate and graduate students. It covers the following
topics: radiation, radiography,
computer tomography, radioisotope imaging, diagnostic ultrasound imaging,
magnetic resonance imaging, and applications of different imaging modalities.

This course requires basic knowledge of linear algebra, calculus, and
geometry. Familiarity with a
programming language such as MATLAB is needed.
