General information

Since 1994 "Computer graphics" is a mandatory course for all students in our department. Since 2005 members of our lab teach elective courses on main research directions, including computer vision, video processing and photorealistic computer graphics. In 2007 we launch our own web system "http://courses.graphicon.ru" that provide web support for our courses. Members of our lab also teach courses at Yandex School for Data Analysis.

Introduction to medical image analysis
Lecturer: Dr. Olga Senyukova

This course is devoted to medical problems, involving image analysis, and state-of-the-art algorithms used for solving these problems. Besides basic algorithms for segmentation, feature extraction and description, algorithms based on machine learning are presented. Also, image matching, or registration algorithms, that play an important role in medical image analysis, are presented. The course is accompanied by the practical task where the students are free in choosing the algorithms.
