Deep Learning for Medical Imaging

when 6 July 2020 - 31 July 2020
language English
duration 4 weeks
credits 10 EC
fee EUR 100

Medical technology has a different set of constraints than consumer technology, including needs for sterilization, higher reliability (& associated standards), and customization to varying anatomy. This class will provide an overview of the field of medical technology, with more in-depth explorations of specific domains of knowledge including medical imaging, image analysis, user interfaces and visualization for medical imaging technology.

Current technology and state-of-the-art research will be covered, and the course will examine the constraints of particular environments in the hospital, such as the operating rooms and emergency response vehicles. Additionally, methods of physical prototyping for early design ideas will be discussed. The course will also provide an in-depth exploration of medical image acquisition technologies (MRI, CT, ultrasound, etc.), and the analysis of medical images with an introduction in artificial intelligence (machine learning and deep learning) for diagnosis and treatment through segmentation and computer aided detection.

This course supports OsloMet's ambition to drive progress on the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Among other things through innovation camp challenge.

Target group

Students from any field, age and country are welcome to apply! The Summer School is hosted by the Department of Computer Science under the Faculty of Technology, Art and Design at Oslo Metropolitan University.
