Abstract

Exciting medical imaging technologies widely applicable to both clinical and basic science research have emerged over the last two decades and are crucially important to the biomedical engineering field. For undergraduate students, 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. In this university, we modified our existing medical imaging curriculum by associating a series of courses with research and clinical laboratories and formed an inherent medical imaging teaching program. We see that this program promotes students' interest to the subjects they are learning and enhances their understanding to medical imaging systems and applications.
