Brief Handbook Description: Information technology (IT) has significantly contributed to the research and practice of medicine, biology and health care. The IT field is growing enormously in scope with biomedicine taking a lead role in utilising the evolving applications to its best advantage. The goal of this unit of study is to provide students with the necessary knowledge to understand the information technology in biomedicine. The major emphasis will be on the principles associated with biomedical data processing, analysis, visualisation, registration, modelling, retrieval, and management. A broad range of practical integrated medical image computing applications will be also elaborated.
Assumed Knowledge: SOFT2412 OR COMP9103. It is assumed that students will have experience with software development as covered in SOFT2412 or COMP9103 (or equivalent UoS from different institutions).
