Undergraduate biomedical imaging education

Journal Article

A review of the current imaging curricula in biomedical engineering undergraduate programs and the best practice that should guide the development of biomedical engineering curricula, is presented. Students can either gets exposure to imaging courses, either by taking all required BME courses or by selecting different tracks in the BME programs. Biomedical engineering imaging (BMI) should be taught as a stand alone introductory imaging course. BME faculty with expertise in imaging should teach BMI, and it should be complemented by guest lectures by imaging faculty, clinical imaging users, and industries' representatives.
