MRTY5141: Hybrid Imaging B

2023 unit information

This unit of study will investigate the equipment tomographic reconstruction image display and analysis used in current clinical molecular and magnetic resonance imaging MRI morphological hybrid systems eg PETMRI Techniques used to improve image quality quantification of radiopharmaceutical biodistribution and the reduction of radiation dose to the patient will also be included Best practice utilisation for typical clinical presentations will be explored Students will be introduced to imaging procedures and protocols for a range of equipment and radiopharmaceuticals Future trends in the application of hybrid medical imaging will be investigated through a review of the current literature
