Study of processing methods of biomedical images for the improvement of the quality and the protection of data

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research will focus on various issues related to the development of biomedical imaging, with particular reference to the ultrasound images and / or X-ray. The first objective is the study of methods for improving the quality of the images. To this end it is necessary to analyze the noise models that degrade the image and study the methods for the removal of degradations or for the visual enhancement of the structures represented. The improvement of the visual quality can also be achieved using methods for increasing the spatial resolution of the acquired data (super-resolution), both single-frame or, if sequences of images are available, even multiframe. A second objective of the research is the study of techniques of data protection based on digital watermarking, which allow to insert, in a reversible way, a digital signature that can be linked uniquely to the patient

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
