Medical imaging technologies widely applicable to both clinical and basic science research are crucially important to the biomedical engineering field. Teaching medical imaging becomes a key component in biomedical engineering education. For undergraduate students who learn medical imaging technologies, however, the "classroom-only" teaching style suffers from many limitations that make it difficult for students to gain a complete understanding of a particular system. We developed a new medical imaging curriculum by associating a series of courses with 1) on-site lecturing in research and clinical laboratories and 2) a set of Internet accessible imaging simulation tutorial programs, and formed an integrated teaching program. This program provides students with medical imaging knowledge in live, effective and interactive formats.
