Learn how to choose and structure computations to extract the required information from a medical image or sequence 3. Apply the methods to real medical images and evaluate the results objectively 4. Understand how to address the differing requirements of humans and computers with respect to analysis and display 5. Demonstrate understanding of assessment of performance in the absence of ground truth 6. Understand the analysis requirements of diagnosis and therapy and the tradeoff considerations for practical implementation 7. Understand the effect of image compression on image utility
