Learn modern methods that will help shape the future of medical interventions

Statistical shape models are one of the most important technologies in computer vision and medical image analysis. With this technology, the computer learns the characteristic shape variations of an object or organ. The model resulting from this analysis may then be used in implant design, image analysis, surgery planning, and many other fields.

In this free online course, you will get insights from mathematics, statistics, and machine learning, in order to address practical problems, as well as a theoretical and practical introduction to the open-source software Scalismo.

What topics will you cover?

  • Modeling families of anatomical shapes
  • The basic theory of Gaussian Processes for modeling shape variations
  • Usage of the shape modeling software Scalismo
  • Building classical statistical shape models from example data
  • Reconstruction of partially observed shapes
  • Fitting statistical shape models to surfaces
  • Establishing point-to-point correspondence between example shapes
  • Fitting statistical shape models to images

Who is the course for?

This course is intended for students and professionals with a Bachelor’s in computer science, medical imaging professionals, and biological anthropologists, who are interested in top-notch research, scientific insights, and a useful application. Please note that tutoring usually takes place between the End of February and Mid May. The course addresses people with some previous knowledge in computer science. If you find it challenging it would be a good idea to wait for the next mentoring window.

Although you can watch the videos, read the articles, and complete the tests and quizzes on mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets, you will have to install the free software Scalismo on your own workstation in order to use it – there is no online version available.

In order to be able to do this, your computer should meet the following minimum system requirements: Windows (32bit/64bit), Mac OS X or Linux (64bit), 4GB of RAM, 500MB of free HD space. There are no special requirements for the graphic adapter.

What software or tools do you need?

To take part in this course, you need to download and install Scalismo Lab and create your account on SMIR.
