      Course description
    Introduction: history, role and fields in computer-assisted image analysis in biomedicine.
    Image registration and integration: role of image registration in medicine, classification of registration techniques, modeling of geometrical transformations and deformations, point-based methods, identification and fitting of control points, surface-based methods, similarity function-based methods, analysis and evaluation of registration techniques, clinical cases of image registration and integration.
    Image segmentation and quantitative analysis: classification of techniques, adaptive thresholding, derivative-based segmentation, area spreading and merging segmentation, classification-based methods, model-based methods. Describing images with mathematical and physical models, describing with prinicipal components, statistical models of appearance and shape. Evaluating segmentation results.
    Image-guided surgical interventions: tracking and navigation systems, visualization in image-guided surgery, intervention planning, registration of images, models and intervention plans with the patient or images of the patient, evaluation of reliability and accuracy of image-guided interventions, clinical value of image-guided interventions.
