Students following this track will acquire the fundaments knowledge and research skills for solving increasingly complex and important challenges associated with human movement and control
The students following this track acquire unique multidisciplinary expertise that makes them ready to face the challenges encountered by the biomedical companies active in these fields as well as by the clinicians and research teams in hospitals, academia and research institutes worldwide. Such specialists represent the guarantee for finding the solution of ‘tomorrow’ related to medical devices for healthcare systems.
In the BME Medical Physics track emphasis is placed on Medical Imaging and Radiotherapy. In Medical Imaging methods such as Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and Nuclear Medicine imaging are providing high-quality 3D and 4D information of the human anatomy, but also of its function and its changes over time. The high quality of these images and resulting diagnostic information must be balanced against factors such as acquisition time and radiation burden to the patient. In radiotherapy, medical physicists play a major role in clinical, technical and biophysical concepts resulting in optimized treatment planning. Medical physicists are often involved in research.
