MRS333 Digital Systems, Sustainability and the Global Community (8)

Students explore current and emerging digital technologies in medical radiation science including image informatics, data reconstruction, and data management systems in order to develop an applied understanding of digital technologies within the clinical environment. Translational knowledge and skills in digital technologies will provide insight and understanding of development of sustainable practices and in connecting to a global community.
