Neuroimaging Training Program Requirements

PhD students wishing to be formally affiliated with the Neuroimaging Training Program (NTP) must complete the following requirements in addition to the requirements of their primary PhD program. It is recommended that students select courses that can simultaneously fulfill other degree requirements whenever possible. 
NTP students are required to take the following courses:
NTP students must also take two imaging electives such as the ones on the list below. One course is selected to provide depth of understanding in the imaging modality or medical image analysis methods most closely related to the student's research, while the other should be chosen for breadth of biomedical imaging knowledge outside of the research area. 
  • HST 531: Medical Physics of Proton Radiation Therapy
  • HST 533: Optimization Problems in Radiation Therapy and Medical Imaging
  • HST 563: Imaging Biophysics and Clinical Applications
  • HST 565: Molecular Imaging using SPECT and PET-CT
  • HST 576: Topics in Neural Signal Processing
  • HST 580: Data Acquisition and Image Reconstruction in MRI
