Course Description

This course is on image analysis and how to extract useful information from images. The perspective taken is that of the use of image analysis in scientific research. In his course the origin and analysis of images acquired through microscopy is the leading theme. Images play a major role in understanding of biological processes. Bio-molecular processes are visualized by a range of microscope techniques and modalities. From images coherent visualizations and models are derived. The characteristic sequence of image analysis starts with the acquisition, proceeds to restoration and segmentation to conclude with analysis and pattern recognition. This sequence will be the skeleton of this course. Image acquisition in microscopy will be dealt with on a theoretical as well as practical level. In a series of lectures all important aspects of imaging along the line of the characteristic sequence of image analysis are dealt with. Concepts of image processing will be introduced and it will be discussed how set of image features is compiled in measurements. Subjects will use the 2D imaging as a means of explaining the principles and the switch to multidimensional imaging to illustrate the implications of imaging in research and connect to current topics in bio-medical research. Presenting results through visualization and modeling is an ingredient found in applications that are discussed. The course consists of a series of lectures, practical assignments using programmable image analysis software environments and "hands-on" experience with microscopes (i.e. image acquisition). The theoretical part is concluded with two written exams. The course is concluded with a report on the practical work.

This course is formally known as Microscopy, Modelling and Visualization. The course is targeted for master students as well as for those PhD students for whom knowledge of imaging and image processing is beneficial to their research projects.

This course will be lectured by Prof. Dr. Ir. F.J. Verbeek
Assistance in the practical part will be given by Xiaoqin Tang and Mehrdad Jahanbanifard, Shima Javanmardi & Laduona Dai
The microscopy will be assisted by G. Lamers (head microscopy unit, IBL).
