|PAM3012||Digital Image Processing for Radiographers||2012-13|
|Dr J.J. Moger|
|Credits:||15 NICATS / 7.5 ECTS|
|Enrolment:||60 students (approx)|
In this module, students will integrate theory with practice by drawing on their prior experience of imaging modalities, and re-interpreting their knowledge of imaging within a mathematical and scientific framework.
Students will develop a level of mathematical skill sufficient to analyse complex waveforms and appreciate the statistical consequences of the information stored in an image. They will develop a knowledge of the underlying algorithms used by image manipulation tools and the extent to which the use of these affect the qualities of the image. Finally, students will learn how each and every component of the imaging chain, from presentation of patient through to the interpretive skills of the radiographer/radiologist can affect the predictive diagnostic capabilities of a method.
