[2016-2021] BE 461/561: Introduction to Biomedical Image Analysis
Dr. Sarder was the director of this course offered every Fall semester and it was designed for BME seniors and first-year graduate students. The course focused on the computational quantification of biologically relevant micro/macroscopic structures in biomedical images. Students learned how (i) raw data is acquired before digitization; (ii) to read, display, and interpret various medical image data types using a computer; (iii) to detect, segment, and quantify heterogeneous structures in biomedical images; (iv) to leverage features extracted from biomedical images for classification; (v) to set up experiments in MATLAB via script writing for biomedical image analysis. Image analysis problems related to fluorescence and brightfield microscopy and fluorescence molecular tomography systems and corresponding biomedically relevant computational image analysis tools were discussed. Simulated and real images of these systems were used for quantitative analysis via MATLAB-based script writing.
[2018-2021] PAS 505: Microscopic Anatomy & Computational Methods
This course was offered every Fall semester and was designed for graduate students in the Pathology department. The course in general discussed the function and structure of microscopic structures of the body. Dr. Sarder’s part of the course introduced the use of computational methods used in the analysis of histological images of these microscopic structures.”
[2018 – 2021] PAS 520: Microscopic Imaging
This course was offered every year to graduate students in the Pathology department. The course provided graduate students with fundamental training in modern optical microscopy and biomedical imaging. Dr. Sarder’s part of the course focused on discussing computational methods used in the analysis of fluorescence microscopy images, deconvolution microscopy, as well as fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy instrumentation, imaging, and analysis.
