Biomedical Imaging

Jason W. Fleischer

This course gives a general introduction to biological and biomedical imaging. Topics covered include basic imaging theory, microscopy, tomography, and imaging through tissue. Both physical and computational imaging will be covered, across a variety of different modalities (including visible light, x-ray, MRI, and ultrasound). The gaps between current technology and limits suggested by information theory will be discussed.
