RADDI511A Physics of Diagnostic Imaging: Fundamentals Course Page

Description: This course is divided into two main sections: (1) Basic Radiation Physics which deals with nuclear and atomic structure using the Bohr model; Radiation Dose, Risk and Safety from low-level ionizing radiation to Diagnostic Radiology, Radiobiology; and (2) General Radiography: production and clinical use of X-rays; the radiographic image and image parameters; patient radiation/imaging concepts. There will be also a lab component where the student will spend an average of one hour per week in a diagnostic procedure room completing specified imaging tasks/lessons. These labs will not be held at specific times, but will be arranged individually for each student. This course will be offered in alternate years to RADDI 512. Prerequisite or corequisite: PHYS 475/477 or consent of Department.

RADDI514 Image Processing and Analysis in Diagnostic Imaging Course Page

Description: The course aims to cover medical image processing and analysis techniques, including de-noising, registration, segmentation, 3D reconstruction, applicable in diagnostic imaging modalities such as ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Clinical examples in cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and brain imaging will be discussed. Prerequisite: Linear algebra and knowledge in MATLAB programming or consent of Department.

RADDI521A Physics of Nuclear Medicine Imaging Course Page

Description: This course investigates the physics involved in the field of clinical nuclear medicine imaging. Discussion of basic atomic theory (Bohr model), interaction of radiation with matter, radioactive decay, and production of radionuclides will be followed with assessment of radiation detection instrumentation (geiger counters, ionization detectors, gamma cameras). PET and SPECT performance and image quality parameters will be emphasized, along with NEMA standards for QA and AT. Calculation methodology for Internal Dosimetry will be presented, followed by a discussion of radiobiology. Prerequisite or Corequisites: Normally restricted to students in Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging. This course will also be offered to students, residents and fellows enrolled in the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. RADDI 511/512 or consent of the Department.
