Image Theory, Perception and Processing

This is a one-day course which covers the underpinning mathematics of medical imaging, comprising image formation, image processing techniques, human visual perception and image display techniques including three-dimensional methods. The material in this course is generally applicable to all types of imaging systems. Illustrations and examples from medical imaging will be used throughout including ultrasound, nuclear medicine, MRI, and x-ray CT.

The course is organised by the Joint Department of Physics of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust and The Institute of Cancer Research.

The course is aimed at individuals who are undertaking formal training in medical physics. As well as being suitable for new entrants to the medical physics profession, it would also be of benefit to post-graduate students, post-doctoral research workers, representatives of allied commercial organisations and anyone wishing to deepen or re-establish their understanding of the mathematical techniques underpinning medical image formation, display and processing.

Provisional lecture list:

  • Mathematics of image formation
  • Image processing techniques
  • Perception and interpretation of medical images
  • Three-dimensional image display
  • Demonstration of image processing techniques

The next course runs on Tuesday 11th February 2025.
