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 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:
For a more detailed overview, see 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)
- Interest in medical image processing
This lecture is going to be succeeded by "Computer Aided Medical Procedures 2" (see summer term 2014 CAMP 2 lecture page) (2+2 SWS, 6 ECTS) in the next summer term (which is recommended, but not obligatory).
- Knowledge in medical image acquisition / image modalities
- Deep insight into medical image computing
A password is needed to access the lecture slides and materials. This will be announced in the first lecture.
We will meet directly at BrainLAB. We cannot provide a bus for this field trip, so you have to get there by yourselves (you can share cars or go by public transport). The address is BrainLAB AG, Kapellenstr. 12, 85622 Feldkirchen.
A short extract about using public transport to arrive at Brainlab from the BrainLAB website:
"From Munich City take the S2 towards 'Erding/Markt Schwaben'. Exit at the 'Feldkirchen' stop. From here you can take a taxi or the regional bus 263, in the direction 'Messestadt West.' Brainlab is located a few meters walking distance from the 'Kapellenstraße' bus stop."
