Aim of course

The aim of the lecture is to provide the students with knowledge about imaging modalities and modern methods in the interdisciplinary field of medical imaging. After the lecture students should be able to find ways of solving tasks in this area of research on their own.

Subject of course

We will discuss the following topics in the course of the lecture:

  • Medical imaging modalities
  • Segmentation (active contours, level-set)
  • Model based detection and segmentation of anatomical structures (active shape models, active appearance models)
  • Texture analysis
  • Interactive segmentation (graph cuts)
  • Rigid and non-rigid registration
  • Neuroimaging and machine learning, analysis of neuroimaging data
  • Applications in interoperative / interventional visualization
  • Atlas building

Methods and modalities will be explained based on real world cases. For each we will discuss the mathematical bassics, and ways of solving it. For each unit we will distribute reading material, so that we can have an interesting discussion during the lecture.

In the course of the lab exercise 183.630 we will implement and test selected methods on medical imaging data.


Additional information

Lecture and lab exercise will be held April to June 2012. The exact dates will be announced on this webpage.
