After completion of the course, the student should be able to:
The student is required to use a mathematical programming language such as MATLAB for the hand-ins and laboratory work.To qualify for the highest grades, the student should also demonstrate the ability to:
The course treats the physical, mathematical and technological aspects of medical imaging systems from a signals-and-systems point of view. Modalities (imaging types) covered include:
Numerical methods to quantify the performance of medical imaging systems are presented. The design of medical imaging systems usually involves a number of trade-offs involving parameters such as: contrast, spatial resolution, noise, image acquisition time, size and cost. It is a major goal of the course to provide an understanding of these relations.
Recommended prerequisites: Fourier transforms and numercial analysis with Matlab or similar computer language.

One written exam (TEN1; 4,5 university credits) and laboratory/project work (LAB1; 3 university credits). Hand-in assignments during the course give bonus points for the written exam.
Passing grade (A-E) in the written exam and passing grade (P) in the lab part.
