ENGG 187 - Medical ImagingSemester Hours: 3
Introduction to the fundamental principles of Image Analysis in Biological Sciences and Medical Imaging. Emphasis on analysis techniques useful in scientific research. Topics include impulse response, transfer function, signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), image display, 2-D convolution, 2-D Fourier Transforms, and linear and nonlinear filters. Theory formulations of major medical imaging modalities (X-ray CT, Ultrasonic, MRI, Radionuclide) are derived from basic principles.
Knowledge of a programming language (Fortran, C, or C++) and the ability to use existing computer programs (MATLAB) are recommended. ENGG 177 or 166B , MATH 144 , PHYS 012A or permission of instructor. No liberal arts credit.
