Minor Biomedical Imaging

Biomedical imaging enables us to literally see inside the human body. It allows us to visualise and understand diseases on different scales: from molecule to cell to tissue to man. During this half minor, organised by the Department of Radiology, (medicine) students learn more about advanced imaging technologies, including ultrasound, image guided interventions, advanced microscopic methods, as well as the application of such imaging with 3D models, artificial intelligence, surgical navigation and image-guided surgery.


Computer Assisted Reconstructive Surgery (CARS) represents a combination of computer assisted technologies that are used to improve reconstructive surgery of bones. In general these technologies consist of: preoperative planning; pre- and intraoperative (3D) imaging; patient specific implant selection (or manufacturing) and surgical navigation.

In this course the student will be trained in all aspects of computer assisted reconstructive surgery, including pre- and intraoperative imaging, preoperative planning, implant selection and design, and intraoperative navigation.

This course (Coursecode TM11008) is part of the interdisciplinary joint-degree Master programme in Technical Medicine.
