Statistical Shape Modelling: Computing the Human Anatomy (FutureLearn)
Learn the technology of modelling, as used in computational face recognition or in surgeries, with this free online course. Statistical shape models are one of the most important technologies in computer vision and medical image analysis. With this technology, the computer learns the characteristic shape variations of an object or organ. The model resulting from this analysis may then be used in implant design, image analysis, surgery planning and many other fields.

What will you achieve?

By the end of the course, you'll be able to...

- Model the normal shape variations of anatomical shapes using Gaussian processes

- Explore the mathematical concept of Gaussian processes visually on 3D shapes

- Apply the theoretical concepts of shape modelling to clinically relevant problems in shape and image analysis

- Develop programs for building and fitting statistical shape models to images using the open source software Scalismo


Who is the course for?

This course is intended for students and professionals with a Bachelor in computer science, medical imaging professionals and biological anthropologists, who are interested in top-notch research, scientific insights and a useful application. Please note that tutoring takes place between March 1, 2021 and May 2 2021

Although you can watch the videos, read the articles, and complete the tests and quizzes on mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets, you will have to install the free software Scalismo on your own workstation in order to use it – there is no online version available.

In order to be able to do this, your computer should meet the following minimum system requirements: Windows (32bit/64bit), Mac OS X or Linux (64bit), 4GB of RAM, 500MB of free HD space. There are no special requirements for the graphic adapter.
