Since the discovery of X-rays by Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen in 1895
imaging systems have become an integral and indispensable part
in science and medicine.
By now they are an essential key technology in modern biomedicine.
Continuing on the course Biomedical Imaging I, held in the winter
semester 2012/2013, the main focus of this course will be on introducing
the physical principles, fundamental properties and technical concepts of
imaging modalities based on magnetic resonance or ultrasound waves.
Applications and current developments will be presented and should
serve to reinforce understanding of this field of imaging science. The course
will cover those systems that were not treated in Biomedical Imaging I and can
thus be attended without prior knowledge. It aims for students of physics,
photonics, material science, medicine as well as interested students at the level
of the fifth semester or higher.
