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.
