RAD 220: Introduction to Imaging and Image-based Human Anatomy (BIOE 220)

Focus on learning the fundamentals of each imaging modality including X-ray Imaging, Ultrasound, CT, and MRI, to learn normal human anatomy and how it appears on medical images, to learn the relative strengths of the modalities, and to answer, "What am I looking at?"

RAD 221: Physics and Engineering of Radionuclide Imaging (BIOE 221)

Physics, instrumentation, and algorithms for positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). Topics include basic physics of photon emission and detection, electronics, system design, strategies for tomographic image reconstruction, data correction algorithms, methods of image quantification, and image quality assessment, and current developments in the field. Prerequisites: Completion of university level mathematics and physics.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

RAD 222C: Advanced Research Topics in Multi-modality Molecular Imaging of Living Subjects (BIOE 229)

Covers advanced topics and controversies in molecular imaging in the understanding of biology and disease. Lectures will include discussion on instrumentation, probes and bioassays. Topics will address unmet needs for visualization and quantification of molecular pathways in biology as well as for diagnosis and disease management. Areas of unmet clinical needs include those in oncology, neurology, cardiovascular medicine and musculoskeletal diseases. The aim is to identify important problems and controversies in a field and address them by providing background and relevance through review of the relevant primary literature, and then proposing and evaluating innovative imaging strategies that are designed to address the problem. The organization of lectures is similar to the thought process that is necessary for writing an NIH grant proposal in which aims are proposed and supported by background and relevance. The innovation of proposed approaches will be highlighted. An aim of the course is to inform students on how to creatively think about a problem and propose a solution focusing on the key elements of writing a successful grant proposal. Prerequisites: none.
Terms: Spr | Units: 4 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

RAD 223: Physics and Engineering of X-Ray Computed Tomography (BIOE 223)

CT scanning geometries, production of x-rays, interactions of x-rays with matter, 2D and 3D CT reconstruction, image presentation, image quality performance parameters, system components, image artirfacts, radiation dose. Prerequisites: differential and integral calculus. Knowledge of Fourier transforms ( EE261) recommended.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

RAD 224: Probes and Applications for Multi-modality Molecular Imaging of Living Subjects (BIOE 224)

Focuses on molecular contrast agents (a.k.a. "probes") that interrogate and target specific cellular and molecular disease mechanisms. Covers the ideal characteristics of molecular probes and how to optimize their design for use as effective imaging reagents that enables readout of specific steps in biological pathways and reveal the nature of disease through noninvasive imaging assays. Prerequisites: none.
Terms: Win | Units: 4 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

RAD 225: Ultrasound Imaging and Therapeutic Applications (BIOE 225)

Covers the basic concepts of ultrasound imaging including acoustic properties of biological tissues, transducer hardware, beam formation, and clinical imaging. Also includes the therapeutic applications of ultrasound including thermal and mechanical effects, visualization of the temperature and radiation force with MRI, tissue assessment with MRI and ultrasound, and ultrasound-enhanced drug delivery.

Instructors: Pauly, K. (PI)

RAD 226: In Vivo Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Imaging (BIOE 226)

Collections of identical independent nuclear spins are described by the classical vector model of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); however, interactions among spins, as occur in many in vivo processes, require a more complete description. Physics and engineering principles of these in vivo magnetic resonance phenomena with emphasis on current research questions and clinical applications. Topics: quantum mechanical description of magnetic resonance, density matrix theory, product operator formalism, relaxation theory and contrast mechanisms, spectroscopic imaging, spectral editing, and multinuclear studies. Prerequisites: EE 369B or familiarity with magnetic resonance, working knowledge of linear algebra.
