After successful completion of the module, students are able to describe reconstruction methods for different tomographic imaging modalities such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.

They know the necessary basics from the fields of signal processing and inverse problems and are familiar with both analytical and iterative image reconstruction methods.

The students have a deepened knowledge of the imaging operators of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.


Overview about different imaging methods, signal processing, inverse problems, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, compressed sensing, magnetic particle imaging.


Basic knowledge in linear algebra, numerics, and signal processing
