Offer 1 with catalog number 4017091DNR for all students in the 1st semester at a (D) Master - preliminary level.
Position of the course
The goal of this course is to make the students familiar with medical imaging and image processing techniques. An overview will be given of the working mechanisms of the most important medical imaging techniques, their advantages and disadadvantages, their applications and recent technical developments.
Introduction to images and image processing: sampling, filters convolution theorem X- rays radiography and principle of computed tomography and analytical reconstruction SPECT imaging: collimation, detection and image degrading effects PET imaging: principle, image degrading effects and iterative reconstruction Ultrasonic imaging MRI: basic principles of magnetic resonance and image formation Image processing and segmentation techniques
