Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
Introduction to Medical Imaging and Image Analysis presents the physics of image formation as well as methods for tomographic image reconstruction for major medical imaging modalities, including X-ray Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Also introduced are fundamentals of digital image processing, with particular emphasis on medical applications, including basic techniques to enhance image quality, image de-noising, methods for extracting, classifying, and tracking features of and objects in images, etc. Students will learn how to implement these techniques in MATLAB (The MathWorks Inc., Natick, MA) to solve practical image processing problems. MATLAB exercises will demonstrate to students how filtering operations applied in the image domain or the Fourier domain affect medical images. In addition to these fundamentals, more advanced algorithmic approaches for image segmentation and image as well as point-cloud registration techniques will also be reviewed.
