Medical Imaging for Biomedical Professionals

This technical training course is specially designed for Biomedical Technicians and Biomedical Engineers those work for private and public hospitals, government agencies or those recently graduated and looking for a job in the market.

Main topics are; X-Ray, Ultrasound, CT, MRI and Nuclear Medicine. Fundamentals of each modality along with understandable Physics covered.

Although some theory under the imaging modalities are discussed, what we focus in this course is the useful information that a biomedical professional needs to know about imaging modalities in his daily life.

This course aims to bring the student at a technical level so that he can perform quality assurance and first line service on main imaging modalities. By the end of the training, student will gain a broad understanding and working principles on the main imaging modalities.

During the course period, you will join hands on practical sessions and find chance to interact with the actual imaging equipments like ultrasound, CT, MR and X-Ray. At these sessions, you will gain confidence and in depth knowledge about the imaging modalities.

You will attend to periodic maintenance sessions, troubleshooting examples, error log viewing, servicing the equipment via phone support, etc.

You will also gain very usable information about X-Ray tubes, ultrasound probes, CT tubes, MRI coils and many more useful topics and up to date market information.

This course covers the following imaging modalities;

- Ultrasound

- X-Ray

- CT


- Nuclear Medicine
