Pattern Recognition for Biomedical Imaging

CSE 5780 / BME 5259
Florida Institute of Technology
Instructor: Debasis Mitra

Department: Computer Sciences


Human health care is gradually becoming more and more dependent on non-invasive imaging techniques. The sciences and technology of medical imaging is a target of intense interdisciplinary research. We will study some of the basic Engineering and Computing techniques in this course. It is primarily a project driven course.

The CSE5780 Syllabus

Catalog Description: Introduces the fundamentals of statistical pattern recognition with examples from different biomedical application areas. Studies techniques for analyzing multidimensional data of various types and scales. Also covers algorithms for projec­tions, and clustering and classification of data.

A medical imaging course from Univ. Michigan
An online book.
Mathworks on wavelet toolbox:

The course have mostly student presentations and discussion, along with assignments & projects. We go over some chapters from the text for basic knowledge on the medical imaging area. We do some research level works & explore some tools in the area.

For text-material presentations: (1) Send me slide before the class, (2) cite your sources on relevant slides, and (3) present some solved chapter-end problems.
For project presentations: (1) Demos are expected when relevant, (2) it should be a progress report mostly, (3) need not be formal presentation, but .ppt is better.
