The students have acquired subject-specific basics in the technology of medical imaging procedures. In particular, the students have acquired the ability to recognize problems that allow tomographic reconstruction and to formulate algorithms for their solution.
Using tomographic imaging techniques, image slices of tissue and bone structures can be reconstructed from projections, i.e. from measured, integral relationships of physical parameters. Computer tomography (CT) measures the penetration of X-rays through a volume to be imaged at different angles and reconstructs the X-ray attenuation coefficient. Magnetic resonance tomography (MR), on the other hand, uses nuclear magnetic resonance effects and images proton densities weighted by relaxation times. From the physical and mathematical basics to practically important reconstruction procedures, all steps from data acquisition to the image are taught.
Knowledge of system theory, Fourier transformation and signal processing, corresponding to those taught as basics in the lectures of the bachelor's program in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.
