Presentations and handouts can be done in English or German
This course was originally announced as master/diploma seminar. Due to request for more bachelor seminars it was changed to a bachelor seminar. We also offer another master/diploma seminar this semester
There are still open topics available (see list below). For application, please send an email to Tobias Blum
The seminar's participants will get a comprehensive insight into the latest developments and advances of computer assisted surgery. Several cutting-edge categories such as segmentation, registration, robotics, simulation and rendering, as well as interventional imaging applied in orthopaedic, cardiac, abdominal, and other applications will be covered. The talks will be based on the latest proceedings of medical and computer science conferences.
The topics of the seminar will cover a selection of outstanding and interesting papers of recent proceedings of important medical and computational conferences such as MICCAI - Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention.
This is a joint seminar between:
- Trauma Surgery Department, Klinikum Innenstadt, LMU München, Germany
- Chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures & Augmented Reality, TU München, Germany.
Students from TU and LMU München, please send an email to Tobias Blum
(), including your favorite topic, your name, your birthday, program of study and Matrikelnummer.
A resignation from the seminar can be performed until April 14, 2009.
