Image Processing for BTP

Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

The main goal of the course is to teach students how to apply basic
image processing tools on medical images using MATLAB®. The student
will be able to write efficient MATLAB® applications to addresses and
solve a range of clinical research questions.

Inhoud vak

Image analysis methods play an increasingly important role in medical
science and clinical patient care. This course discusses the most
important image analysis techniques and explains how they can be
applied. These include image histogram analysis, neighbourhood
processing, image fusion, and morphological operations. Rationales for
using these techniques are illustrated with examples from several
imaging modalities and clinical fields. The student then learns how to
apply these techniques practically using MATLAB®. The final mark is the
average of the mark obtained at the written examination and the mark
obtained at the final practical assignment.
