Abstract

Medical imaging education is a key training component in BME programs. Medical imaging education involves teaching physics principles, mathematical derivations, engineering implementations for image generation, reconstruction and application. We developed an Internet accessible, medical imaging teaching software and dynamic assessment tracking system for teaching five commonly used imaging modalities. Each imaging modality is delivered by interactive modules. The system is integrated by the open source MySQL database software that manages updating materials and also tracks student's learning gain through various assessments. Instructor gets instant feedback on the topic delivered through his/her lecture when students work on the system. We have applied this teaching/tracking system in small size classes. The results have shown increased learning gains promisingly. We are continuing the development and plan to apply the system to other local institutions for biomedical or other engineering students.
