Session-1: Medical Imaging

Medicinal Imaging is the strategy and procedure of making visual portrayals of the inside of a body for clinical investigation and therapeutic mediation and in addition visual portrayal of the capacity of a few organs or tissues. Medicinal imaging tries to uncover interior structures covered up by the skin and bones, and in addition to analyze and treat the ailment. Therapeutic imaging additionally builds up a database of typical life systems and physiology to make it conceivable to distinguish variations from the norm. In spite of the fact that imaging of expelled organs and tissues can be performed for therapeutic reasons, such methods are generally considered a piece of pathology rather than restorative imaging.

Session-2: Therapeutic Imaging

Therapeutic imaging eludes to considerable measure diverse advancements that are utilized to see the human body so as to investigate, screen, or treat medical conditions. Medical imaging constitutes a database of normal anatomy and physiology to make it desirable to identify abnormalities. This includes the use of a variety of modalities, some of which may involve a risk of harmful ionizing emission. Due to the brisk advances in imaging technology, such as the introduction of multi-detector arrays and fast MRI protocols, both the number and variety of radiological applications are hysterically increasing. Each kind of innovation gives distinctive data about the territory of the body being considered or treated, identified with conceivable infection, damage, or the viability of therapeutic treatment.

Session-3: Ultrasound Imaging

It uses high-frequency sound waves to view inside the body. Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can also show the migration of the body's internal organs as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels. Unlike X-ray imaging, there is no ionizing radiation exposure associated with ultrasound imaging. This is commonly correlated with imaging the fetus in pregnant women. The ultrasound image is produced based on the reflection of the waves off of the body frame. The power of the sound signal and the time it takes for the wave to travel through the body provide the information necessary to produce an image.

Session-4: Magnetic Resonance Imaging

MRI is a therapeutic imaging strategy for making images of the interior structures of the body. MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields and radio waves to make images. It uses powerful magnets to demarcate and excite hydrogen nuclei of water molecules in human tissue, producing an appreciable signal which is spatially encoded, resulting in images of the body. Like CT, MRI habitually creates a 2D image of a thin "slice" of the body and is therefore studied a tomographic imaging technique. Contemporary MRI instruments are capable of producing images in the form of 3D blocks, which may be considered a generalization of the single-slice, tomographic, concept. Amid an MRI exam, an electric current is gone through curled wires to make a brief attractive field in a patient's body. Radio waves are sent from and got by a transmitter/recipient in the machine, and these signs are utilized to make computerized pictures of the filtered zone of the body. MRI scans last from 20 - 90 minutes, depending on the part of the body being imaged.

Session-5: Pediatric X-ray Imaging

Restorative x-beam imaging exams, which incorporate Computed tomography (CT), fluoroscopy, and traditional X-beams, utilize the most reduced radiation dosage obligatory, considering the size and age of the patient. It needs committed imaging conventions to procure the pictures, there is a requirement for acclimated anesthesia for profound techniques, for example, MRI, particular preparing is required for the medicinal services unit included, and exact information and skill ought to be connected for figuring the pictures. It requires consideration for radiation exposure if ionizing radiation is being used. One of the challenges for clinical care personnel is to gain the child's trust and co-operation before and throughout the duration of an examination, which can prove to be difficult in children who may be ill and have pain. This is important to acquire quality images and prevent repeat examinations.

Session-6: Radiography

It is an imaging approach using X-rays to view the internal structure of an object. To construct the image, a beam of X-rays, a form of electromagnetic radiation, are composed by an X-ray alternator and are projected toward the object. A convinced amount of X-ray is absorbed by the object, defenseless on its density and composition.

The X-rays that pass through the object are conquering behind the object by a detector. Two forms of radiographic images are used Projection radiography and fluoroscopy. Fluoroscopy delivers ongoing pictures of inside structures of the body, however, draws in a consistent contribution of x-beams, at a lower measurements rate. Projection radiographs, regularly known as x-beams, are frequently used to control the sort and span of a break and in addition for identifying obsessive changes in the lungs.

Session-7: Computed Tomography

It is also frequently referred to as a CAT scan, is a Medical Imaging process that combines multiple X-ray projections taken from distinct angles to produce detailed cross-sectional images of areas indoors the body.  CT images allow doctors to get very decisive, 3-D views of convinced parts of the body, like as soft tissues, the pelvis, blood vessels, the lungs, the brain, the heart, abdomen, and bones. CT is also generally the preferred method of analyzing many cancers, such as liver, lung and pancreatic cancers. Digital geometry processing is used to farther provoke a three-dimensional volume of the inside of the object from an extensive sequence of two-dimensional radiographic images taken around a single axis of rotation. It has all the more as of late been utilized for a preventive solution or screening for an ailment, for instance, CT colonography for individuals with a high danger of colon tumor, or full-movement heart checks for individuals with a high danger of coronary illness.

Session-8: Optical Imaging

Diffuse optical Imaging is a method of designing using near-infrared spectroscopy or fluorescence-established methods. When used to conceive 3D volumetric models of the imaged material DOI is referred to as diffuse optical tomography, though 2D imaging methods are confidential as diffuse optical topography. The disadvantage of optical imaging is the inadequacy of penetration depth, exclusively when working at visible wavelengths. The depth of penetration is linked to the absorption and scattering of light, which is primarily a function of the wavelength of the excitation source. Light is absorbed by endogenous chromophores found in living tissue. Examples include optical microscopy, spectroscopy, endoscopy, scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, and optical coherence tomography.

Session-9: Near Infrared Imaging

Close Infrared Spectroscopy and Imaging utilizes nearby infrared light in the vicinity of 650 and 950 nm to non-obtrusively test the solidification and oxygenation of hemoglobin in the cerebrum, muscle alongside different tissues and is worn e.g. to identify changes persuaded by mind action, damage, or sickness. In brain analysis it complements functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) by implementing measures of both oxygenated and deoxygenated haemoglobin concentrations and by permissive studies in populations of subjects with experimental paradigms that are not amenable to fMRI. Various close infrared (NIR) fluorophores have been utilized for in vivo imaging, including Kodak X-SIGHT Dyes and Conjugates, Pz 247, DyLight 750 and 800 Fluors, Although NIRS is commonly performed adopting instruments that emitted endless wave light and commonly measure the intensity of light inseminate through the tissue, it is also desirable to perform measurements where the source of light is intensity inflected (between 50 to 500 MHz) or oscillate (typically pulsed on for less than 100 ps) and the detector resolves correspondingly the phase or temporal delay of the light propagating over the tissue. These measurements are usually termed frequency domain or time domain measurements and because they provide direct measurements of photon propagation delay within the tissue as well as the intensity
