Computer aided analysis of medical images (CT, MR, Ultrasound, PET,...) is growing in its popularity as the benefits of non-invasive imaging and diagnoses are becoming more and more obvious and as the amount of data available has increased beyond level comprehendible by manual analysis. In recent years, many research groups become involved in investigation of methods for semi-automated and fully-automated analysis of medical images.

This talk will provide an overview of general steps that are required in medical image analysis, such as image preprocessing, computer aided detection, segmentation, etc. More detailed excursion into some areas of the preprocessing (various methods of image gradient computation) and segmentation (active contours, dynamic programming, active appearance models) will be provided.
