Learning Outcomes of UE

The main objective of the molecular imaging course is to present several imaging techniques with both theoretical and experimental approaches, including some examples of applications.

Content of UE

Introduction: Background of imaging techniques, X-ray scanner, nuclear imaging with radioisotopes (PET and SPECT techniques), ultrasound imaging, MALDI imaging, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), optical imaging (techniques of FRAP, FRET, FLIM, FLIP and FCS)
Conclusions: description of the advantages/disadvantages and complementary aspects of the techniques, presentation of molecular imaging applications
