About the course

Comprehensive Transversal Program in Medical Image Post Processing:
3D Printing and Artificial Intelligence

An innovative training programme in image processing and 3D printing, to provide health-related professionals the theoretical and practical knowledge they need to use new imaging technologies for diagnosis.

The EXPERT3D course will enable professionals to perform post-processing of the radiological image for healthcare and research – employing advances like 3D image-prints, virtual technologies and artificial intelligence. These disruptive technologies have fostered the merger of engineering and medicine, creating a demand for professionals with new skills that unite the two disciplines.

EXPERT3D will provide the students with the training needed, gathering multidisciplinary instructors with years of practical experience in post-processing of the medical image, planned surgery, 3D printing and use of the image for research.

This is the first programme on medical imaging for diagnosis that targets not only physicians, but also bioengineers, computer scientists, senior technicians in diagnostics imaging and other medical specialists. Given the range of specialties involved, learners will not be required to have prior computer programming knowledge, though those with that knowledge will be guided to understand the basics of 3D imaging and to develop AI algorithms for image processing.

The learning will take place through a mixture of online training and a 2 weeks in-person practical programme.

This project is an international collaboration between public and private institutions and financed by EIT Health.
