Course information

Description: EN:
This second course in the “Imaging from molecule to man” specialization will focus on the application of imaging to address physiological and pathological disease processes in man in a clinical (research) setting. This course focuses on application of imaging in a clinical (research) setting. This means that all imaging modalities discussed during this course can be applied on humans. It is not the intention to go in depth on the physics principles of the imaging techniques, but we will focus on the application of the techniques in daily clinical routine/research. It is important for the student to learn what are advantages and disadvantages of the different imaging modalities, with the aim that students will be able to independently make a (grounded) choice for one or multiple imaging strategies to solve or answer clinical questions or questions arising in a (clinical) research setting.
Goals: EN:

After this course the student:

- identifies what imaging modalities are (regularly) being used at the moment in the typical clinical (research) setting and which methodology is state-of-the-art (and/or is being developed)

- knows what information is within an image and can extract this information from the image (image processing and analysis).

imaging modalities in a clinical (research) setting.in vivo and ex vivo- specifies the opportunities and limitations of

- chooses the appropriate imaging modality/modalities (e.g. MRI/MRS, PET, CT, Ultrasound, microscopy) for specific use in a clinical (research) setting.

Key words: EN:
