Offer 1 with catalog number 4023324FNR for all students in the 1st semester at a (F) Master - specialised 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. In addition, an introduction is given to the most commonly used techniques in medical image processing and analysis.
Keywords: MRI, CT, SPECT, PET, Ultrasound, image processing
Requisites: Basic knowledge of physics and signal processing.
After completing this course, the student will:
This course contributes to the following programme outcomes of the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering:
MA_A: KNOWLEDGE ORIENTED COMPETENCES
