Class Description

Effective immediately in response to COVID-19, all Technology Training classes will be delivered online until further notice.

In advance of each session, Tech Training will provide you with a Zoom link to your class, along with any required class materials.
 



Data science and digital image processing are becoming an increasingly integral part of health care. This course exposes you to ways data science is used to extract innovative and actionable insights from healthcare-related datasets and medical imaging.
 

In this course, we will examine how predictive modeling is used to assess outcomes, needs, and potential interventions. We will also explore medical image analysis which has become an inherent part of medical technology.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • During this course, you will have the opportunity to:
  • Install Anaconda on a personal computer.
  • Prepare and explore healthcare-related datasets using the primary tools for data science in Python (e.g., NumPy, Pandas, Matplotlib, Scikit-learn).
  • Examine many of the unique qualities and challenges of healthcare data.
  • Understand how data science is impacting medical diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment.
  • Use a data-science approach to evaluate and learn from healthcare data  (e.g., behavioral, genomic, pharmacological).
  • Use deep learning and TensorFlow to interpret and classify medical images.
  • Perform feature extraction, segmentation, and quantitative measurements of medical images.
  • Understand the increasing importance of data science and image processing in healthcare.
