III-IV (spring), lectured in even years

Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

After completing the course the student is able to:

  • analyze the applicability of the covered imaging methods in research and clinical imaging,
  • describe the instrumentation required for these methods,
  • explain the advantages, disadvantages, and risks of each method.

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

This course follows NBE-E4000 (Principles of biomedical imaging) and focuses on the applications of imaging methods used in clinical medicine and neuroscience, including digital radiology, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound imaging, positron emission tomography, functional magnetic resonance imaging, near-infrared spectroscopic imaging, electro- and magnetoencephalography, and navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation. The basic principles of methods not covered by NBE-E4000 are given. Multimodal imaging is also discussed.

Many of the lectures are given by guest lecturers that are experts in the application of each imaging method.

Assessment Methods and Criteria (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020):
