I will send you a confirmation email - in case you do not receive any confirmation email within max. 1 week, please contact me again. Your registration is not binding but enables us to send you information about changes in schedule in the future.
- A password is needed to access the lecture slides. This will be announced in the first lecture.
Time & Location:
- The classes and exam are in English.
- This lecture is going to be succeeded by "Computer Aided Medical Procedures II" (see SS08 CAMP 2 lecture page) (2+2 SWS, 6 ECTS) in the next summer term (which is recommended but not obligatory).
- In case of organizational questions, please contact Ahmad Ahmadi.
- Date: Thursday, 05 February 2009
- Where: MW 1050
- Time: 15.45 - 17.15
- Type: written, closed book (no material), approx. 90min
- Grading of the exam:
- approx. 80% for detailed questions and problems to solve on the CAMP lectures (type "C" in the course schedule below)
- approx. 20% for more general questions on invited talks and field trips (types "I" and "F" in the course schedule below)
- Results: The results will be published on the mytum page.
Computer science is playing an important, increasing role in medical practices. Medical imaging companies are no more asked by physicians to only produce images of anatomy. Instead, they are asked to design software and hardware systems to provide complex computer-aided solutions for diagnosis, intervention and therapy. There are more and more opportunities for computer science graduates to contribute to the development and deployment of medical solutions. Within the operating rooms, there is an increasing need for the integration and visualization of heterogeneous data acquired by numerous sensors.
This course on computer aided medical procedures exposes the students to the challenges of building the operating rooms of the future. The main focus of the course is in imaging technologies especially intra-operative imaging as well as the visualization of this data. Techniques like segmentation and registration will be explained in various classes.
There will be invited guests from the hospital Rechts der Isar and also medical companies in the Thursday classes. They will talk about the physical properties and the clinical use of the different modalitries and techniques. The invited guests will be announced in the course schedule below.
Here is a rough overview of the topics that were presented in last year's lecture:
- Computer-Aided Surgery and Exemplary Applications
- Image Processing and Segmentation
- Basics of Tracking Technologies
- Visualization and Medical Augmented Reality
- Surgical Workflow - Analysis, Monitoring and Applications
- Basics of Radiography (X-Ray, CT etc.) - Physical Properties, Applications, Radiation Therapy
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging - Basics, Advanced MRI and Applications
- Ultrasound Imaging
- Nuclear Medicine (PET/SPECT)
For a more detailed overview, see last year's lecture
- Interest in medical image processing
- Knowledge in medical image acquisition / image modalities
- Deep insight into medical image computing
Preliminary Course Schedule
Within the CAMP lecture, we try to bring students into contact with industrial leaders providing computer-aided medical systems and software. Last year, we were able to provide two field trips, which we plan to arrange for this lecture as well.
Siemens Medical Solutions
Date: Thu, Nov 13, 2008
There will be a one day field trip to Siemens Medical in Forchheim and Erlangen (a bus will be most probably provided, bringing students from TUM Garching to Siemens sites and back). The two Siemens sites serve as research and production sites for CT (Computed Tomography), AX (Angiography / X-Ray) and MR (Magnetic Resonance Imaging).
Date: Tue, Jan 13, 2009 (prospective date)
We plan to feature a half-day field trip to BrainLAB, Kapellenstr. 12, 85622 Feldkirchen. BrainLAB
provides advanced radiotherapy, radiosurgery, neurosurgery, orthopedic and ENT surgery products, services, and software solutions worldwide.
