This course introduces a set of widely used medical imaging technologies which allows obtaining tridimensional images with diagnostic information of the patients. Specifically, the course provides the basics of anatomical imaging (e.g. X-Ray imaging), which provides structural information, and radionuclide imaging, which comprises a set of technologies capable of obtaining functional information of organs and tissues and the molecular and cellular level. Students will gain basic understanding of the physics of image acquisition, the instrumentation, the algorithms required for image processing the data and the most important biomedical applications.
