This course covers the physical concept behind the bio-signal transduction that leads to the acquisition of signals from a biological system. It will also provide a framework towards the understanding of interpretation of these signals into multi-dimensional data for imaging and analysis. The images or signal are then used for understanding biological systems and also diagnostics purposes. Key concept behind these techniques such as MRI, ultrasound, biophotonics, microscopy, EEG, and medical imaging processing will be taught in this course. There will be examples of qualitative performance in the context of molecular and clinical settings.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:1. Apply physics and engineering concepts to different imaging modalities.
2. Explain the complexity of system biology from cellular to tissue and organ (immune, circulatory system), understanding the basic bioengineering: cell culture and tissue engineering.
3. Select the appropriate imaging system for different biological levels: organ, tissues, cells, molecule, justifying the pros and cons of each technique, whilst also demonstrating an understanding of appropriate handling procedures.
4. Demonstrate understanding of how different signal (optical, acoustic, high energy radiation) are converted to an image (2D, 3D) through numerical and statistical methods.
5. Utilise identify an engineering approach to physical and numerical concepts in new state-of-the-art bioimaging system, whilst also identifying the design factors that contribute to construction of advanced bioimaging system.
6. Analyse and compare the performance of each imaging modalities using basic numerical methods.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
