PHYS 390 Biomedical Imaging
Content: This course introduces several cutting-edge imaging techniques used in science and medicine and explores some of the physics underlying these techniques. Concepts are explored through lectures, readings, and hands-on, out-of-class activities. Elementary concepts from fields of physics including electromagnetism, optics, and modern physics are used to explain microscopy, endoscopy, ultrasound, CAT scans, and magnetic resonance imaging.
Prerequisites: PHYS 142 or 152.
Usually offered: Annually, spring semester.
Semester credits: 4.
