Imaging Biophysics and Clinical Applications HST 563

This team-taught course takes advantage of the many, diverse HST-affiliated imaging labs and faculty to provide a broad introduction to the range of applications of biomedical imaging in research as well as in the clinic, including discussions of those imaging modalities not fully addressed in other classes such as HST 560J (ultrasound, MEG and optical imaging, for example).

The course introduces students to a) connections and distinctions between various imaging modalities, b) common goals of biomedical imaging, c) broadly defined targets of biomedical imaging, and d) the current practical and economic landscape of biomedical imaging research. Together with HST560J, and forthcoming HST courses, it prepares students for careers in biomedical imaging.
