Computer Aided Medical Procedures II - IN2022


Lecture: Prof. Nassir Navab

Organization: Dr. Ulrich Eck and Dr. Guillaume Zahnd
Tutors: Alexander Winkler and Walter Simson

Time & Location

  • Wednesdays: 12:30pm - 2:00pm in room TBA
  • Thursdays: 2:30pm - 4:00pm in room TBA


Upon successful completion of the module participants are able to understand the fundamentals, differences, and application areas of advanced methods for image processing, image segmentation and image registration as well as are able to implement them in Python. Moreover, participants are able to understand the fundamentals of machine learning and 3D volume visualization. Furthermore, participants are able to understand complex problems in the area of computer aided diagnosis and interventions as well as to develop solution strategies based on the covered algorithms in the aforementioned areas.


  • Basic knowledge in image computing (not necessarily acquired through the CAMP I lecture)
  • Interest in algorithmic/implementation aspects
  • Specific knowledge in Python is not required but beneficial. However, you should be somehow skilled in programming.


  • Module Spezification: IN2022
  • SWS: 2+2
  • ECTS: 5 Credits
  • Course Language: English
  • Exam: 90 minutes, written, closed book
