This course introduces the fundamental notions of acoustic wave propagation in fluids and solids, and their applications to medical imaging: equations of acoustics in infinite and finite media (standing waves, guided waves), Green's functions, diffraction problems, imaging algorithms, etc.

The course takes the form of lectures and theoretical / numerical tutorials, followed by practical work sessions where the main concepts covered in the course are applied to data acquired in the laboratory with research equipment.
