Synopsis:

Students are introduced into the basic concepts of using information technologies in medical application. They gain basic knowledge of UNIX, X-Windows, networking with TCP-IP protocol, types of storage and back-up of data, network and data security, and how to avoid data misuse. Next, they will be indroduced into the opportunities of achieving, processing, and storing medical images, formats of medical data (DICOM), native medical networks (PACS), and systems of pacient monitoring. The last chapter is about using computer technique for the statistical data processing (focused on clinical data and epidemiological studies). Short basic excersises are included.
