Design and Configuration of a Medical Imaging Systems Computer Laboratory Syllabus
Selver, M. Alper
IEEE Transactions on Education, v59 n2 p129-136 May 2016
Medical imaging systems (MIS) constitute an important emergent subdiscipline of engineering studies. In the context of electrical and electronics engineering (EEE) education, MIS courses cover physics, instrumentation, data acquisition, image formation, modeling, and quality assessment of various modalities. Many well-structured MIS courses are available for EEE curricula, providing introduction to all modern diagnostic imaging systems. However, in these courses the laboratory component is limited to image formation and analysis. This paper proposes a wide range of experiments that incorporate various disciplines of EEE education into MIS courses. These experiments are designed to integrate knowledge that students have acquired previously from key EEE courses (such as circuit theory, differential equations, wave theory, energy conversion, control theory, and signal processing) into their new MIS knowledge. The proposed laboratory was adapted to a senior-year MIS class in the EEE Department of Dokuz Eylu¨l University, Turkey. This paper presents the application of these new laboratory experiments, along with the assessment results.
