In this course the most important medical imaging modalities will be treated. After an introductory lecture, x-ray imaging (radiography, fluoroscopy, digital subtraction angiography, computed tomography), nuclear imaging techniques (SPECT & PET), ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) will be discussed. The increasing importance of medical imaging for diagnosis, guiding surgery and minimally invasive radiological interventions will be emphasized. During the course, representative problems will be handed out and discussed.
This course will be taught in Dutch.
