Full course description

Course Introduction:
This course builds upon the foundations of Engineering in Medical Imaging in the Clinical Service Engineering certificate, to walk through the operation and implementation of medical imaging systems in a clinical environment, particularly focusing on configuring equipment, designing operational workflows, programming and networking systems, managing data through complex interfaces, and analyzing images. 
Pre-requisites: Engineering in Medical Imaging 1 and 2

Learning Outcomes:
At the end of the course, students should be able to: 
  1. Diagram, and explain using words and theory, the circuit implementation for X-Ray detectors.
  2. Describe common noise problems in detector systems and explain the root cause and solutions for each.
  3. Demonstrate the appropriate use of noise reduction techniques for a given noise problem.
  4. Explain, using words and diagrams, the various networking methods used to connect and transfer medical image data from or between medical imaging systems and workstations.
  5. Demonstrate how to correctly network imaging systems using Windows Server and DICOM.
  6. Explain, using words and diagrams, the overarching image process and analysis framework through which medical images are acquired and reviewed.
  7. Describe, using words, diagrams, and theory, the primary types of image/video processing and analysis methods, how they function, and how they relate to each other.
