Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The goal of this course is to give a tabular information about the special medical instruments. Contribution of this subject are the acquired knowledge from the special medical technology and imaging methods in medicine. The acquired knowledge and skill creates the basic knowledge of biomedicine engineering.

The aim of this object is concentrated on the special medical technology - microscopic, endoscopic, oftalmological, stomatology, sterilizing, X-ray technology, haemodialysis, laboratory technoligy biochemistry and haematology, sonographical, surgical, magnetic resonance and computer tomography. The next block of themes is concentrated on the imaging methods in medicine. The basic course of image theory, mathematical proceedings for its evaluation and image view with regard to PC, linear transform and numeric filtration of the image. Further on TV display systems, problems of scanning, scanning and evaluation of images. TV scanning elements, displays and thermovision scanning cameras.
