Course Offerings

Introduction To Imaging

Description: IMAG2301 Introduction to Imaging

The Introduction to Imaging course serves as a necessary step for technicians seeking advanced medical imaging device education, training, and career opportunities as Imaging Engineers.

The course was purposely designed by senior Biomedical Equipment Technicians and Imaging Engineers with a Biomedical Equipment Technicians' prior education, training, and experience in mind.

During the 6-week course, students will engage with seasoned imaging technicians as they explore the complexities of medical imaging devices and the various roles and responsibilities associated with maintaining, trouble-shooting, servicing, and repairing complex imaging systems.

Students will explore the history and development of diagnostic imaging in healthcare and establish an understanding of the theory and principles associated with diagnostic imaging. 

Lastly, students completing the introductory course will have been introduced to X-Ray theory and principles; the taxonomy of medical imaging devices in healthcare; orientation and familiarization of different systems and their component parts; radiation safety and compliance. Students with no prior imaging experience or with limited transferable technical expertise will be encouraged to participate in the introductory course prior to enrolling in the Advanced Imaging or other modality-specific imaging course

Radiographic Anatomy

Description: IMAG2380 Radiographic Anatomy

Medical imaging requires the interaction of radiation with matter to extract clinical and biological information from the human body.

Imaging Engineers responsible for maintaining radiographic devices must understand how anatomy and physiology interact with radiation for image quality control and reproduction.

Knowing the correlation between the human body, positioning requirements, beam alignment, and exposure factors are necessary to identify equipment problematic areas and projected outcomes. 

Imaging Engineers with the foundational knowledge of anatomy and potential pathology can improve communication with medical staff, increase patient safety, and more effectively repair and maintain radiologic equipment.

The Radiographic Anatomy course includes both theoretical and practical education designed to improve an Engineers understanding of the association between human anatomy and physiology and the diagnostic images produced by imaging devices.

Course topics include anatomical structures, pathology, artifacts, standard positions with projections, and tissue effects for image output and personnel.
