• 9.2.2 IMAGING EQUATION PET *
• 9.2.3 Get the idea, don't focus on ART and ML-EM (unless you're curious)

* No need to be able to recite the mathematical formulation of the imaging equations, just get the main points: inverse square law, object attenuation, detector characteristics (pixel width, detection efficiency, ...), etc. and how they affect the image.

Chapter 10

• 10.3.3 Study the principles of transmission and reflection
• 10.3.4 Study the principles attenuation, absorption and scattering
• 10.3.6 Study the principles of Harmonic generation
• 10.4 Study the principles of Doppler imaging
• 10.5 Skip

Chapter 11

• 11.2 Read very briefly and be able to describe the main components of an ultrasound imaging device.
• 11.3 Understand Time Gain Compensation TGC,
• 11.5 Understand A-mode M-mode and B-mode, Understand the frequency dependence of the penetration depth,
• 11.6.1 Study how transmit steering works and how to calculate the time delay for both plane wave front and focusing to a focal point.
• 11.8.1 Understand harmonic imaging. Which direction has the best/worst spatial resolution in ultrasound? (check in the slides)

Chapter 12

• Read if necessary for the understanding of Chapter 13 + answer: what is the most common contrast agent in MRI and why does it give contrast?

Chapter 13

• 13.1 Read briefly and be able to describe the main components of the MRI camera.
• 13.2 Study the principles – slice selection, frequency encoding, scanning of Fourier space, spin echoes. Be able to explain in words how they work.
• 13.3 Study the two methods of image reconstruction: rectilinear and polar. Compare to the methods used in CT (the Fourier method and FBP)
