Biomedical Imaging

The module aims to equip learners with a broad appreciation of the underlying physics, mathematics and technologies underpinning microscopy, radiography and medical image processing. Students will learn about imaging theory. They will be introduced to the core imaging modalities in use today.

Most modules require a 2.2 degree in a related discipline or equivalent professional experience. Should you have any queries regarding your eligibility, please contact us at


On completion of this module, the successful student will be able to:

1.Describe the principles underlying a range of modalities including but not limited to X-ray projection imaging and MRI.
2. Understand and describe the uses and limitation of each modality.
3. Use a Fourier optics description to analyse imaging systems including microscopes.
4. Perform denoising using the wavelet transform.
5. Perform pattern classification using neural networks.
6. Appreciate current research trends in biomedical imaging.
