What I would highlight Content was very informative and well organized. I had some problems with the new words used (english is not my native language), but with dictionary I found my way through the content. Basic physics content was provided in good order and I learned a lot. I liked the "Brian case" we were following in the course. All of the instructors were awesome. I enjoyed the videos, because the instructors were clearly interested in their subjects and their pronunciation was clear. Provider seemed to be ok. I have to say I don't know much about the University of Queensland and there was not much information about the university in the course content.

What could be improved Everything was positive.

What I would highlight Excellent information, however I've had trouble understanding with the Australian accent! I am a high school teacher from the United States, taking this course to improve my teaching for a concurrent enrollment Anatomy and Physiology class of seniors.

What could be improved Nothing.

What I would highlight Very interesting course, I'm a electronics engineering student and I find this very useful to my career. Some instructors made me only read the transcription because the video was so slow in explaination. But everything was good

What could be improved Everything OK.

Course programme

Imaging technologies form a significant component of the health budgets of all developed economies, and most people need advanced imaging such as MRIs, X-Rays and CT Scans (or CAT Scans) during their life. Many of us are aware of the misinformation sometimes offered in TV dramas, which either exaggerates the benefits or overemphasizes the risks. This medical imaging course provides an introduction to biomedical imaging and modern imaging modalities. The course also covers the basic scientific principals behind each modality, and introduces some of the key applications, from neurological diseases to cancers. This course includes modules specially designed for the general public, whilst also providing some advanced modules which could contribute to professional development in health, engineering and IT industries.
