Tutorial Details: Image processing using MATLAB

Date: Tuesday, October 23, 2007, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): Ravishankar Chityala, MSI

MATLAB is a general computational platform for rapid development of programs. It also has several toolboxes that allow specialized computations. One such toolbox, the Image Processing Toolbox, has functions that can be used to perform various operations on images.

These operations can be classified into reading, processing, and writing images. We will begin the tutorial by performing simple image reading operations on jpeg, gif, etc. We will also discuss reading complex image formats like DICOM. We will then perform various image processing operations such as filtering, visualization, and analysis. We will output these images to different formats to be read by other applications.

Finally we will conclude with hands-on practice using various example images. Users are also welcome to bring specific questions and problems that they would like to discuss.

Prerequisites: MATLAB programming and basic image processing
