Cursusdoelen
After completion of the Minor, students are able to:
  1. Know the fundamentals of the major types of imaging modalities available.
  2. Gain hands-on experience of several of the major types of imaging modalities available.
  3. Understand the applications of different imaging techniques, both clinical and preclinical.
  4. Able to perform laboratory experiments with various imaging modalities, from sample preparation to the imaging and analysis of the data.
  5. Choose the best/most appropriate imaging modality for a particular application.
Inhoud
Imaging in biomedical sciences is vital for research, diagnosis and visualization of health and disease. How can we visualize the growth and metastasis of tumors? How can we follow the migration of even a single immune cell through the body? How can we observe the interactions between antigen presenting cells and T-cells? Rapid technological developments in the imaging field are increasing our capabilities to address these important processes. This Minor will provide an in-depth and hands-on introduction to the various imaging modalities used both in clinical and preclinical settings. Going from molecules to man, this Minor will allow the students to understand and operate several key imaging techniques at a basic level, including those at the molecular/cellular level (e.g.: optical and electron microscopy), at the tissue/animal level (immunohistochemistry and intravital imaging) and at whole-body imaging techniques such as ultrasound, MRI and PET. In addition, students will practice how to handle Big Data generated by these techniques and will get a first glimpse on the application of Artificial Intelligence to image analysis. During these practical courses, the students will also gain hands-on experience with a wide range of basic techniques required for preparation of samples for the different imaging modalities, such as cell culture, transfection and immunolabeling with antibodies. The module offers personalized education through multiple possibilities to select your own preferences (i.e. focus on more molecular/cellular, pre-clinical, and/or whole-body imaging). At the end of the minor, students will be able to design experiments involving imaging, with an understanding of the pros and cons of each modality. Thereby, this course will provide a solid foundation for the Bachelor internships in Toxicology and Pathobiology.
