This lecture teaches students to transfer their knowledge from the field of medical imaging and computer assisted interventions to practical algorithms. During the classes, the students get exposed to particular problems from segmentation, registration, navigation, tracking, and medical augmented reality and are then guided when implementing those algorithms themselves using MATLAB during the exercises.

The exercises take place in a lab room with MATLAB workstations.


  • Basic knowledge in image computing (not necessarily acquired through the CAMP I lecture)
  • Interest in algorithmic/implementation aspects
  • Ability to work in small teams

  • Specific knowledge in MATLAB is not required but beneficial. However, you should be somehow skilled in programming.


  • Deep insight into medical image computing
  • Ability to implement solutions for computer aided medical procedures

Title: Computer Aided Medical Procedures II
Professor: Prof. Dr. Nassir Navab
Tutors: Pascal Fallavollita, Peter Maday, Mehmet Yigitsoy
Type: Lecture
Information: 2+2 SWS, 5 ECTS Credits (Module IN2022)
Term: 2013SoSe
Abstract: 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 are explained in various classes.
