Aims
Medical Acoustics will give a deeper insight in the medical application of ultrasound. The course will focus in-depth into various diagnostic methods used in medical ultrasound for cardiac and radiology applications. These include colour flow, Doppler, intravascular ultrasound, high-frequency ultrasound and contrast imaging.
COURSE OUTLINE:Several experts in the field of medical ultrasound will provide interesting cases. There is ample room for hands-on demonstrations in the practical sessions. The course starts with the technical details of ultrasound (transducers, signal analysis, physical techniques) and will conclude with several application used in the clinical field today. Part of the course is given as traditional lectures, some of them will be in the form of assignments or practical lab classes.
Content
This course will focus in-depth into various diagnostic methods used in medical ultrasound for cardiac and radiology applications. These include color flow Doppler, intravascular ultrasound, high-frequency ultrasound and contrast imaging. Several experts in the field of medical ultrasound will provide interesting cases. There is ample room for hands-on demonstrations in the practical sessions.

There will be a weekly lecture on Thursday mornings followed by a tutorial session. In the practical sessions on Friday mornings knowledge obtained in the lectures will be put into practice. The goal is to design a simple medical ultrasound scanner.

Purpose
In-depth knowledge of medical applications of ultrasound.
