    ESPB 6.0 Status mandatory
    Condition None
    The goal Introduce students to the basic concepts of medical imaging, image properties and quality and many of the medical imaging modalities (radiography, fluoroscopy, CT, MRI, US, SPECT and PET). Introduce students the basic concepts of tomography and Radon transform. Analytic (BP, FBP, etc.) and iterative (MLEM, OSMLEM, OSL etc.) image reconstruction methods form projections are analyzed in detail.
    The outcome Students will be enabled to be engaged in a medical imaging. They will have active knowledge in the field of projection radiography and tomography. They will be able, as a engineer, to understand, design, improve and maintain medical imaging devices.
