Unit of study_

Image Optimisation and Processing - MRTY2103

Year - 2020

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.

2x1-hr lectures and 1x1-hr practical/tutorial per week

1 x 2-hr exam (50%), mid semester quiz (30%), practical report (20%)
