Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students will be able to define different types of imaging systems in medicine and the differences between mini. They will be able to describe and explain the principles of these imaging methods in medicine.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Experimental work in labs


The goal of course is an explanation of the basics of imaging methods used in medical diagnostics without the need for deep knowledge of mathematics and physics. Students will be acquainted with the basics of X-rays, methods of computer tomography, magnetic resonance, ultrasound, PET and SPECT. The subject is focused on basic principles and approaches.
