Understand and apply the following:
- Develop a familiarity with the basic biomedical imaging modalities and their history (x-ray, CT, ultrasound, MRI, and nuclear medicine).
- Develop a working knowledge of the basic physics, engineering, and instrumentation principles underpinning each modality.
- Deepen their understanding of the typical applications for each modality, and of each modality's strengths and weaknesses.
- Develop a deep understanding of the physics of MRI, MRI image acquisituion, and reconstruction techniques, and be able to apply that knowledge to the analysis and solution of typical problems arising in MRI image acquisition and reonstruction.
