Course - Signal Processing in Ultrasound Imaging - MEDT4165
MEDT4165 - Signal Processing in Ultrasound Imaging
The course includes the use of signal theory and signal processing in ultrasound imaging. The main focus is medical applications, but also technical applications in aquaculture, oil and gas will be covered.
- Mathematical model for pulse-echo imaging systems based on signals in space and time.
- Spatial/temporal resolution; effects of limited bandwidth and sampling.
- Description of dynamic images by multi-dimensional Fourier analysis.
- Practical reconstruction algorithms for 2D and 3D imaging.
- Use of grayscale / color graphic representation of dynamic image information.
- Estimation of power spectrum and autocorrelation applied to ultrasonic Doppler signals.
- Numerical simulations, visualization, and presentation of results in Matlab.
- Data acquisition and storage of medical image data.
Learning methods and activities
Semester-based lectures through the whole semester. Lectures, laboratory demonstrations, exercises.
Mandatory exercises: There are 8 exercises that must be approved to be allowed to take the final exam. The midterm exercise counts as one exercise.
Approved exercises are valid until the end of the next year of study.
Further on evaluation
Portfolio assessment is the basis for the grade earned in the course. This portfolio comprises a written final examination (80%) and the exercises (20%). The exercises count only if they have a positive effect on the final grade. The result for each of the constituent parts is given in %- points, while the grade for the whole portfolio (course grade) is given as a letter grade.
Students are free to choose Norwegian or English for written assessments.
For re-sit examinations, the written examination must be completed over again. Postponed/repeated exams may be oral.
The exercises count only if they have a positive effect on the final grade.
In case of an appeal, only the written exam will be assessed again.
You are allowed to retake the exam with approved exercises from the last year of study. In this case, the exam will count 100%.
Exam registration requires that class registration is approved in the same semester. Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
