General physics : mechanics (German)

The course establishes the basic notions that will allow the student to have a better understanding of the physical phenomena in mechanics. The students acquires the capability to quantitatively analyse the consequences of these effects with appropriate theoretical tools.

Fundamentals of biomedical imaging

The goal of this course is to illustrate how modern principles of basic science approaches are integrated into the major biomedical imaging modalities of importance to biology and medicine, with an emphasis on those of interest to in vivo.

Advanced biomedical imaging methods and instrumentation

The main goal of this course is to give the student a solid introduction into approaches, methods, and instrumentation used in biomedical research. A major focus is on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and related methods, but other imaging modalities will be increasingly covered.
