Course summary

Programme description

This programme aims to disseminate medical image analysis knowledge, skills, and understanding, enabling effective and efficient medical image analysis which can be used both clinically and commercially.

Covering the physics of imaging and related techniques, there is also focus on specialised content covering image processing and analysis.

Students will also be able to make use of the MATLAB computing environment and programming language.

This programme harnesses our expertise in image processing and analysis, which will allow learners to train in this field via an online learning environment.

Postgraduate Professional Development

Postgraduate Professional Development (PPD) is aimed at working professionals who want to advance their knowledge through a postgraduate-level course(s), without the time or financial commitment of a full Masters, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate. You may take a maximum of 50 credits worth of courses over two years through our PPD scheme.

Learning outcomes

  1. Demonstrate subject specific knowledge and understanding in theoretical and practical aspects of Medical Image Analysis and Processing.
  2. Develop specialised skills and critical understanding of advanced image analysis and processing principles using the MATLAB platform.
  3. Gain critical insight into challenges underpinning image analysis, including image enhancement and compensating for artefacts.
  4. Apply specialised skills in image analysis and processing through independent and autonomous activity and communicate outcomes to a range of audiences.
  5. Critically appraise various machine learning architectures and algorithms used in image segmentation, clustering and classification.

Career opportunities

Medical image analysis and processing has great significance in the field of medicine, especially in non-invasive treatment and clinical study.

There is a clear need for the accurate interpretation and analysis of medical images, which often involves the need of a computer aided system to understand the image, the image structure and to know what it means.

We anticipate that this programme will help learners from a range of disciplines to acquire a knowledge base & skill set which will support engagement and employment in the field of image processing and analysis.
