About the Course

In this course students will learn through practice the application of different machine learning methods to problems involving medical images. The Master-Praktikum will consist in:

  • (1) a few introductory lectures on machine learning and its application in different problems involving medical imaging,
  • (2) a number of exercises to apply different learning approaches to toy example data,
  • (3) a machine learning project with a real medical application to be solved in groups (pairs).

Regular meetings will be held individually with each group to follow up the progress of the project along the semester

Presentation and Report


  • Registration through TUMOnline.
  • Maximum number of participants: 20.


  • Basic knowledge in MATLAB and C/C++ programming is an advantage.
