Medical Imaging Instrumentation

The mentioned study specialization aims to focus the student profile in medical instrumentation used in imaging methods in medicine. Attention is paid to understanding the physical principles of imaging modalities and related properties and parameters, including the ability to assess the impact on the final quality of the image data. Emphasis is then placed on the dash and construction implementation of the imaging system. In connection with the evaluation of the quality of the output image data, students are familiar with the basics of image processing and analysis, including the possibility of it´s capture. Very important in understanding the application of imaging methods is knowledge from biology, anatomy and physiology in particular. In terms of representation of individual disciplines are the following categories: applications of optoelectronics in medicine, image processing and analysis, imaging systems in nuclear medicine, ultrasound and Doppler imaging systems, X-rays imaging systems, television, endoscopic and infrared imaging systems, magnetic resonance imaging and electrical impedance tomography, microscopic imaging systems in medicine and ultimately the application of fiber optics in medicine, particularly in imaging techniques. Lectures are supplemented by laboratory exercises on models and sub-blocks of real instruments (especially the parts relating to the image capturing - image sensors) used in clinical practice. Focus includes a section dedicated to student work on the project, which is part of the thesis and the study of languages, especially Czech. After completing the courses within the study specialization student will be able to focus fully and independently work on a thesis topic in the laboratories of faculty or other external cooperating workplaces, including health facilities (hospitals).
