Lärandemål (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

After taking the course, the student can

  • explain the basics of medical image enhancement, segmentation and registration methods,
  • describe assumptions and needs behind medical applications (image analysis vs. medical image analysis),
  • choose image analysis methods for solving specific medical image analysis problems,
  • implement simple medical image analysis algorithms,
  • validate image analysis methods, and
  • read critically literature on the topic.

Innehåll (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The course gives basic knowledge about different techniques used in medical image analysis: image enhancement, feature detection, image segmentation, image registration, classification and validation. The focus is on getting an overview of various methods used widely in medical image analysis and giving tools to students for solving various image analysis problems in practise. Multiple examples of real life medical image analysis problems are presented. The course gives also understanding about validation of different methods, which is essential in medicine.
