Abstract

As a key training component in Biomedical Engineering programs, Medical Imaging education involves different physics principles and mathematical derivations for image generation, reconstruction, and instrumentation. We developed an Internet accessible and interactive teaching system, that provides background review, text/figure illustration, interactive animation, dynamic simulation, and application demonstration for teaching five commonly used medical imaging modalities (X-ray, CT, MRI, PET and Ultrasound). Each imaging modality is taught or learned through five to six modules (topics). The system is also associated with a database that updates the teaching/learning materials and also tracks student's learning gain through different assessments. The instructor gets instant feedback on the topic delivered through his/her lecture when students work on the system. We have applied the teaching/tracking system in small size classes. The results are satisfactory, convincing and promising. We plan to complete all teaching/learning modules and to avail both systems for any instructor's teaching application.
