About MAIA

WHY JOINING MAIA?

Medical Image Analysis and Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) systems, in close development with novel imaging techniques, have revolutionised healthcare in recent years. Those developments have allowed doctors to achieve a much more accurate diagnosis, at an early stage, of the most important diseases. Technology behind the development of CAD systems stems from various research areas in computer science such as: artificial intelligence, machine learning, pattern recognition, computer vision, image processing and sensors and acquisition. There is a clear lack of MSc studies which cover the previously mentioned areas with a specific application to the analysis of medical images and development of CAD systems within an integrated medical imaging background. Moreover, the medical technology industry has detected a growing need of expert graduates in this field.
Join MAIA to be part of this revolution and impact your career!

Target

This master’s degree is the right degree not just for holders of a bachelor’s degree in Informatics Engineering but also in closely related fields in either Engineering (e.g., Electrical, Industrial and Telecommunications Engineering, …) or Science (e.g., Mathematics and Physics, …) who pursue a deeper knowledge of information technology and its applications.

Duration

2 years’ joint master degree (120 ECTS)

STUDENT TESTIMONIAL

I did my PhD at UNICLAM (Cassino, Italy) where, in collaboration with RadboudUMC (Nijmegen, the Netherlands), I worked on the development of Computer Aided Diagnosis systems for digital mammography. As a side-project in collaboration with Allen Institute for Brain Science (Seattle, U.S.A.) and University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome (Rome, Italy), I also worked on ultra-Terabyte whole mouse brain image visualisation and assisted analysis. Now, I am happy to continue my work at UNICLAM as post-doctoral fellow and am extremely grateful to collaborate with world-leading researchers in their respective fields.

- Dr. Alessandro Bria, Post-doctoral fellow UNICLAM

I did my PhD on medical imaging, particularly in breast ultrasound imaging, and I am currently working in a private R&D company. My PhD provided me with the necessary skills to start a new challenge in a complete different research topic.

I did my PhD on registration of multimodal prostate images from University of Girona, Spain and University of Burgundy, France. It was a wonderful experience to work with the clinicians in Girona and the professors from both the universities were extremely helpful. After the completion of my PhD in 2012, I have been working in CSIRO, Australia as a post-doctoral fellow on brain image analysis. All these experiences on prostate and brain image analysis have helped me to get a new role as a senior research associate at the Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, USA that I am looking forward to start towards the end of this year.

During my doctorate studies at the UdG, I’ve had an opportunity to work on a novel skin scanning system together with the world’s top dermatologists. It’s a great honor for me to continue this work as a post-doc researcher.

I did my PhD on medical imaging at the UdG and I currently work at the RadboudUMC (Nijmegen, the Netherlands) developing image analysis techniques to make breast cancer screening more effective. I am really satisfied with how my PhD research helped me in boosting my professional career."
