This unit of study builds upon the theory and application of Imaging Technology 1. Students will be expected to demonstrate an appreciation of image quality theory as it applies to x-ray systems, including tubes, detectors, radiation dose and display. Image processing, in both spatial and frequency domains, will be explored in an applied context so that students can optimise their practical understanding of imaging technique and image display.
