GS02 1072 Statistics for Medical Physicists

Zhou, Shouhao. Two semester hours. Fall, annually. Grading System: Letter Grade. Prerequisites: Calculus, Linear Algebra.

This course is a one-semester overview of statistical concepts in biomedical and imaging studies. The material is intended to provide an introduction to applied methods of biostatistics that are prevalent in an engineering curriculum but are now increasingly encountered in medical physics literature and various areas of medical physics research, including non-model-based solutions to one sample and two sample problems. Students will gain experience in general understanding of the underlying statistical principles, the general approach to data analysis and interpretation of appropriate statistical methods
