ABET Program Outcomes Associated with this Course
Program Specific Student Outcomes
(1) Understanding of biology and physiology as related to biomedical engineering needs. (2) Ability to apply knowledge of advanced mathematics (including differential equations and statistics), sciences, and engineering to solve problems at the interface of engineering and biology and to model biological systems (3) Ability to design and conduct experiments, including making measurements and interpreting experimental data from living systems and addressing the problems associated with the interaction between living systems and non-living materials and systems
Brief List of Topics to be Covered
This course presents the application of medical imaging theory to problems in medical imaging science including: evaluation of medical image system performance, point spread function and noise characteristics, use of images for diagnosis, measurement of anatomical structures and organ function.
