Imaging in medicine


This course is about the scientific basis of medical imaging. Imaging techniques have long been part of the physician's diagnostic repertoire. Their use has been developed from simple X-ray measurements in the Accident and Emergency Unit to a range of subtle investigations of both the structure and functional status of targeted organs, including the brain. Medical imaging is at the heart of contemporary medical practice.
