MajorCV(B), IF(B), INGIF(B), WIF(B), MSE (M)


Important topics in the field of Human-Machine Interaction are presented and discussed in this seminar. These topics are:

After an introduction into the field of computer-assisted surgery, the above-mentioned topics are presented in form of student presentations. Therefore, scientific publications are provided by the lecturer.

The aim of this seminar is to provide an overview about Human-Machine Interaction in medicine. In addition, students can train and improve their skills in scientific reading, presentation and discussion.

The number of participants for this seminar is limited. A registration via LSF is required.
