For further information see Electrical and Computer Engineering


The course presents a relatively broad overview of signals and images in medicine and biology. In detail, the topics are: instrumentation for physiological measurement; medical imaging, particularly magnetic resonance imaging; processing of physiological signals, particularly those from the brain and heart; and processing of medical images. Students will be assessed on the basis of two individual assignments: 1) a review paper to be prepared from a literature study of a specific topic; and 2) a study of a method applied to real medical signals using Matlab or Python and submitted in the form of a research paper and brief oral presentation.


Subject to approval of the Head of Department.
