Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is only offered to the students of the study fields the course is directly associated with.
fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
Course objectives
The course includes description of physical and technical fundamentals of CT, MRI, US and X-ray metods including basic physical derivations and calculations in this field. The student should understand the basic principles of the examination methods as introduced above. This course is a starting point to aquire necessary knowledge of tehcnical prionciples of above methods, their indications and risks.
Learning outcomes
After fishing this course the student is able to derive some physical equations necessary for physical and technical fundamentals of CT, MRI, US a X-ray metods and to do simple calculations in this field. The student should know the basic principles of examination and should be able to exploit better the information from CT, MRI a US and X-ray images. The course gives deeper understanding of technical principles of individual methods, their indications and risks.
