User Interfaces in Medical Imaging Technology
Medical technology has a different set of constraints than consumer technology, including needs for sterilization, higher reliability (& associated standards), and customization to varying anatomy.
Course specific requirements:
- One half year (30 ECTS) of university education.
Course specific requirements come in addition to the general requirements, and most be completed before the application-deadline 1 March. It is recommended to have completed one full year of university studies (60 ECTS) before the program starts.
Due to the nature of the course we suggest that the applicant has experience in computer science and in health professions or medicine.
This class will provide an overview of the field of medical technology, with more in-depth explorations of specific domains of knowledge including user interfaces 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 overview in-depth exploration of medical image acquisition technologies (MRI, CT, ultrasound, etc.), and the analysis of medical images for diagnosis through segmentation and computer aided detection.
The course will be offered both with 5 ECTS and 10 ECTS – the assignments differ between the two.
More information on the course will follow in January 2017.
