Learning Outcomes

After completing the course, the student has skills and knowledge on tomography imaging in medicine. The students will have basic knowledge on multimodality image registration and segmentation methods.


Content Core content Complementary knowledge Specialist knowledge
1. Basic principles of the image reconstruction methods in tomography imaging. This includes Radon tranformation, BP, FBP and MLEM.  OSEM and noise penalization (one step late and MRP)   Mathematical proofs of the reconstruction methods. 
2. Real world constraints in medical imaging.     
3. Image quality measures and perfromance measures for PET Scanners. Standards for image formats.     
4. Image coregistration for medical use, problems and image fusion techniques. Image segmentation.     
5. Structural imaging versus functional imaging in the view of automatic analysis of the image sets.
