465-0957-00LAnatomy and Physiology for Medical Physicists IO2 KP2VF. Kuhn
KurzbeschreibungIntroduction to structure and function of the human body. The lectures will be based on current clinical practices in Radiology, Neuroradiology and Nuclear Medicine.
LernzielPhysiological and anatomical knowledge of the human body to ensure the correct understanding of basic concepts and to facilitate the collaboration of medical physicists and other health professionals.
Inhalt'Anatomy and physiology for medical physicists I & II' provides insights into structure and function of the human body. The content is presented in an accessible manner targeted to physicist working in a medical environment. The lectures will be based on current clinical practices in Radiology, Neuroradiology and Nuclear Medicine. After an introduction to cells and tissues the following systems will be addressed: 1) Support & Movement (musculoskeletal system, biomechanics); 2) Neuroscience (central and peripheral nervous system); 3) Auto-regulation (endocrine system) & Internal Transport (blood & cardiovascular system); 4) Environmental Exchange (respiratory, urinary, digestive & reproductive system).

227-0385-10LBiomedical ImagingO6 KP5GS. Kozerke, K. P. Prüssmann
KurzbeschreibungIntroduction and analysis of medical imaging technology including X-ray procedures, computed tomography, nuclear imaging techniques using single photon and positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound imaging techniques.
LernzielTo understand the physical and technical principles underlying X-ray imaging, computed tomography, single photon and positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound and Doppler imaging techniques. The mathematical framework is developed to describe image encoding/decoding, point-spread function/modular transfer function, signal-to-noise ratio, contrast behavior for each of the methods. Matlab exercises are used to implement and study basic concepts.
Inhalt- X-ray imaging
- Computed tomography
- Single photon emission tomography
- Positron emission tomography
- Magnetic resonance imaging
- Ultrasound/Doppler imaging

465-0966-00LPhysics in Radiodiagnostic and Nuclear MedicineO2 KP3GF. Bochud
KurzbeschreibungThe course is dedicated to introduce MAS students from Medical Physics to the field of radiodiagnostic and nuclear medicine. Dedicated practicals will illustrate the theory with an emphasis on the relationship between dose and image quality as well as the security problems related to the work with radiations.
LernzielThis 1-week theory and practical class offers the possibility to enjoy a variety of research and clinical areas in diagnostic and nuclear medicine. It gives insight into practical concepts and techniques that are discussed thoroughly as the class is performed within actual laboratories with real radiation sources.
InhaltThe course starts with the physical basis of radiography (from X-ray production to image detectors) and continues with the basic parameters of image quality in radiography (contrast, resolution, noise) and their measurement methods. Specific applications of radiation diagnostic are then considered separately.
The physics of fluoroscopy and mammography is presented with emphasis on the type of detectors. Computer tomography starts from mono- to multi-detector row technology and finishes with the dose indicators and the impacts of acquisition parameters on patient dose.
Nuclear medicine is approached through the production and labeling of radiopharmaceuticals before explaining the aspects related to quality control like the stability of the compounds, nuclide- and radionuclide purity as well as apyrogeneicity and sterility.
Imaging aspects of nuclear medicine are treated in details for SPECT and PET through the instrumentation, the reconstruction algorithms and the corresponding image quality.
Finally, the aspects related to patient dose and radiation protection of the personnel are considered separately for diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine. The general frameworks of external as well as internal irradiation are presented and practical examples of dose calculations are explained.
