Image and System Analysis

This is an introductory course to image and system analysis aiming to provide the basic knowledge on image data processing and system analysis for medical imaging and radiotherapy optimization.

In this course you will study methods used for signal processing such as transform methods (Fourier, Laplace and Z-transform), impulse response methods, variance and differential methods and signal analysis, filtering and noise management. Methods for image visualization, segmentation and registration applied to medical images are also studied as well as statistical methods for image data analysis. The course includes classroom lectures, computer exercises and calculation exercises.

  • Course structure

    This is an advanced course given during the daytime. The course is included in the Master`s Programme in Medical Physics. I can also be taken as an independent course.

    Teaching format

    The education consists of lectures and tutorials, calculation exercises and computer exercises as well as practical demonstrations.


    The course is examined through written exam.
