Master thesis works

Master Thesis Works

We are looking for students with interest in medical image processing, cardiac physiology, or MR physics. Experience in Matlab programming and relevant courses are valuable merits.

Ideally, we would find projects where the student has a strong interest and that there is a strong need to solve the challenge by the research group, therefore the best is to find mutually interesting projects. Therefore, we typically do not advertise specific projects on this page, but rather find individually adjusted projects. Master thesis works can be performed in conjunction with the spin-off company Medviso AB. For more information about if we have possibility suitable projects and the capacity to supervise students, please contact Einar Heiberg. The following projects are examples of areas where we see possible projects.

Image analytics of large study cohorts

Using machine learning techniques, we want to automate the analysis process so that it will be possible to perform processing of large study cohorts, such as the SCAPIS population consisting of 30 000 subjects.

New 3D printing techniques for clinical utility

We work closely together with neurosurgeons, hand surgeons, and maxillofacial surgeons and develop new applications including moulds for bone cement implants, design of cutting and drilling guides, and patient-specific implants. We have access to a multitude of 3D printers at the department.

Image reconstruction for cardiac fetal images

 Acquiring cardiac fetal MR images is very challenging and the image reconstruction is critical for the success. Image reconstruction can be performed using a technique called compressed sensing, or machine learning approaches.

Image processing

There is a multitude of image processing tasks that is needed at the department such as robust image registration to tissue characterization.
