Bioimaging Focus Area

What is Bioimaging?

Bioimaging represents the acquisition, processing, and visualization of structural or functional images of living systems.  Medical imaging modalities are many, including but not limited to:  X-ray, ultrasound, MRI and fMRI, CT, and PET.  Medical imaging and image processing are integral to the extraction of anatomical and biological information from the systems level down to the molecular level with the goal of clinically seeking to reveal, diagnose, or examine diseases, as well as to the study of normal anatomy and physiology.  Image processing techniques, such as segmentation, registration methods, feature recognition and classification represent an indispensable component of bioimaging.

Note: At least two electives (6 s.h.) must be from the list of Engineering Topics. An additional 21 s.h. of electives are also required (suggested electives list, minor, or certificate courses).
Please check MyUI for the most up to date course offerings and pre/corequisites. 

Bioimaging students can take ENGR:2130 as a focus area elective if they have taken ENGR:2995 as a required Engineering course (and vice versa).

Please consult this guide when selecting electives that have machine learning content.
