The course C190/06 Image diagnostic methods for evaluation of the musculosceletal system is being offered by the Graduate School of Health, Aarhus University, fall 2022.
Criteria for participation: University degree in medicine, dentistry, nursing, or master’s degree in other fields and/or postgraduate research fellows (PhD students and research-year medical students).
Recommended knowledge for participation: Basic Physics (high school level) and anatomy.
Aim: To educate participants about different image diagnostic methods and their potential for research and clinical investigation of the human body/musculoskeletal system including baseline knowledge on their advantages/limitations and risks (radiation physics, protection and doses/risks).
- Understand the most common radiologic methods
- Understand the basic background for methods (physics, instruments)
- Characterize risks of the methods
- Understand the advantages and disadvantages/imitations of the methods
- Obtain inspiration to new methods in research projects
Workload: The full workload of the course is expected to be 22,5 hours.
Content: The course focus is to image diagnostic methods and their potential for research and clinical investigation of the human body/musculoskeletal system including baseline knowledge on their advantages/limitations and risks (radiation physics, protection and doses/risks). Methods included are: X-ray, HRpQCT, DXA, Radiostereometry, CT, High-end CT, Cone Beam CT, µCT, SPECT, PET, Dynamic NaF PET, MRI and US.
