OVERVIEW

The Electrical and Electronic Measurement Course proposes the study of the basics of electrical and electronic measurements, starting from the knowledge of the fundamental and derived units of measurement, from the evaluation of the uncertainty in the measure through the error statistic. It therefore envisages the study of basic electrical measurements, the study of information in Analogue and Digital signals, the main Analogue / Digital and Digital / Analogue conversion systems.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Acquire the foundations of the science of electrical and electronic measurements, with particular reference to error theory, instrumentation and the main measurement methods. Acquire knowledge in the fields of electrotechnics, electronics and related devices. Acquire the basics of physical physics 'Electricity and magnetism with particular regard to all the necessary knowledge for the work of the medical technician of medical radiology. Acquiring the basis for knowledge of physical, biological and pathological physiological phenomena, knowledge of the principles of operation of diagnostic instruments and fields Ionizing and / or non-ionizing radiations from these products, in order to acquire all the knowledge necessary to enable proper dosimetric physical optimization during the diagnostic test. Also acquire the physics knowledge associated with the usual imaging diagnostics techniques: ultrasound, RM, TC, SPECT and PET. Understand machine operation mechanisms, diagnostic potential, and the magnitude of the operator's risk That of the patient. Learn to locate, on a case-by-case basis, the physics knowledge, the diagnostic path and how the exam performs to optimize the benefit / risk, while also having certain financial constraints.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of the course is to provide students with the fundamentals of the science of electrical engineering by the law of ohms and the circuits resolution by Kirchoff and the general on electrical and electronic measurements, with particular reference to the generality of the measures, to know the basics of theory Errors, instrumentation and the main measurement methods. Teaching, while being basic, requires the acquisition of knowledge in the fields of electrotechnics, electromagnetism and electronics and related devices.

Teaching methods

Teaching involves the acquisition of 1 CFU (25 hours) through a series of frontal lessons (10 hours) and 15 hours of individual study. The frontal lessons will be held by Prof. Deseri (contract professor).

LESSONS

Teaching methods

Teaching involves the acquisition of 1 CFU (25 hours) through a series of frontal lessons (10 hours) and 15 hours of individual study. The frontal lessons will be held by Prof. Deseri (contract professor).

LESSONS START

The lessons generally start in October-November of each academic year and end by December of the same year.

EXAMS

Exam description

Examination is done in writing.

The paper deals with the topics discussed during the frontal lesson and consists of a test with 10 open answer questions (3 points for each correct answer). Examples of questions will be provided during the last lectures and slides on the Aulaweb portal. The exam, which takes place on the same day as Physics Applied 1 and 2, has an average duration of approximately 2 hours. The evaluations considered sufficient, of the individual subjects of Electrical and Electronic Measures and Applied Physics 1 and 2, will only be considered valid until the next appeal of the a. In which it has been supported. After that date, the student will have to repeat all the tests of the Integrated Course.

To access the appeal, students must have passed, as required by the course pre-requisite, all 1st year appeals, with the exception of a non-pre-appeal. The minimum vote to get enough in each match is 18/30. With the marks obtained, a weighted average will be made taking into account the number of credits of each party.

There will be 2 exams for the winter session (mid January-February) and 3 appeals for the summer session (June, July and September). Extraordinary appeals will not be granted outside the periods indicated in the Degree Course Regulations, except for exceptional cases previously evaluated by the CdS Didactic Commission.

Assessment methods

Details on how to prepare for the exam and the degree of depth of each subject will be given during the lessons.

The examination will verify the actual acquisition by the student of the basic knowledge on Applied Physics, and Electrical and Electronic Measures in Healthcare. The student should be able to connect and integrate the knowledge learned during the internship activities with those provided during the frontal lessons. Problems and open questions will allow us to evaluate the ability to use knowledge in practical situations that may occur.
