Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


- Clinical motivation (interventional radiology, neuroradiology, and cardiology) - Interventional imaging modalities - Basics of x-ray imaging - Angiographic imaging in 2D - Angiographic imaging in 3D: CT basics, CT reconstruction - Current topics (cardiac imaging, perfusion imaging, metal artifact reduction, etc.)

Learning Outcome

After successful completion of this module, participants understand the key concepts of interventional imaging and image processing. They are familiar with minimally invasive procedures and can list well-known challenges associated to imaging and image visualisation. Participants further know state-of-the-art algorithms for digital imaging and image processing.

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

Depending on the number of registered students, the exam takes the form of a written or an oral test. Questions allow to assess acquaintance with concepts of interventional imaging and image processing and to identify ability to conceive appropriate algorithmic solutions to challenging medical scenarios.

Exam Repetition

There is a possibility to take the exam at the end of the semester.

Condensed Matter

When atoms interact things can get interesting. Fundamental research on the underlying properties of materials and nanostructures and exploration of the potential they provide for applications.

Nuclei, Particles, Astrophysics

A journey of discovery to understanding our world at the subatomic scale, from the nuclei inside atoms down to the most elementary building blocks of matter. Are you ready for the adventure?


Biological systems, from proteins to living cells and organisms, obey physical principles. Our research groups in biophysics shape one of Germany's largest scientific clusters in this area.
