#### EE 6265 Principles of Biomedical Ultrasound and Photoacoustics 生醫光聲原理

Introduce basic principles of biomedical ultrasound imaging systems including conventional ultrasound and photoacoustics –an emerging and promising ultrasound-mediated biophotonic imaging modality. Collateral comparisons between these two imaging modalities (ultrasound versus optics) are included for each lecture topic. Clinical applications, system design considerations, related signal processing and recent progress will be discussed. Fundamentals in tissue optics will be also introduced.

#### EE 4410 Introduction to Biomedical Imaging 生醫影像導論

This is an introductory course of biomedical “imaging” (i.e., design a camera for taking pictures of bio-stuff) with emphasis on the EE, signals and systems aspects. It will cover the most important imaging modalities - projection radiography, x-ray computed tomography, nuclear medicine imaging, ultrasound imaging, and magnetic resonance imaging. Basic principles, instrumentation, image characteristics, clinical applications, and recent progress of these imaging modalities will be discussed. The students will also learn how to apply the knowledge taught in the course "Signals and Systems" to biomedical imaging.

Course introduction for Spring 2012

#### EE 2310 Introduction to Programming 計算機程式設計

This is an introductory course for programming in C/C++ language.We will cover basics (e.g., basic data type, conditioning, looping) and detail some more advanced topics (e.g., array and pointer, function, file I/O, memory usage) in C/C++. Emphases will focus on "Learning by doing", and "Good programming practices". Useful C++ routines and the concept of object-oriented programming will also be covered.

Course introduction for Fall 2011

#### EE 3660 Introduction to Digital Signal Processing 數位訊號處理概論

This course introduces the concept and applications of discrete-time/digital signal processing. Concepts including sampling and aliasing, discrete-time Fourier transform, z-Transform, FIR/IIR filter design, and DSP algorithms will be covered in this course. Multimedia, biomedical, and other applications will be discussed whenever appropriate so as to strengthen students' intuition.
