Xenophon (Xenios) Papademetris

Welcome to my personal webpage. I am a professor of Biomedical Informatics and Data Science, Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, and Biomedical Engineering at Yale. My research is in the area of medical image analysis with a particular interest in the development of software tools to make algorithms easily accessible -- see this page for a complete bibliography. I also coordinate the development of the Yale BioImageSuite Web software package (www.bioimagesuiteweb.org). 

I currently teach a class titled “Medical Software Design”. I am also the first author of the textbook "Introduction to Medical Software: Foundations for Digital Health, Devices and Diagnostics" that will was published by Cambridge University Press in 2022, and the lead instructor for the Yale/Coursera class "Introduction to Medical Software". For more information on these teaching projects see this page.

I also lead the new Yale certificate program on Medical Software and Medical AI. For more information see the program webpage, and this recent article published in the Yale Daily News.

This page is meant to archive some of my teaching notes/writings mostly on software/programming topics.

A book that I wrote for the needs of the Yale Class "Medical Software Design" (BENG 406b) that I taught (and still teach) in the Spring Semester beginning in 2017.

For more information about the book see https://www.medsoftbook.com/the-book.

This 12-week class presents an introduction to this topic. For more information about the class see https://www.medsoftbook.com/the-coursera-class.

This page contains handouts and slides from 1995-2005. These cover mostly on programming for image analysis using Matlab, TCL and C++.

This includes the never-published textbook "An Introduction to Programming for Medical Image Analysis with the Visualization Toolkit" that was made available online beginning in 2006 (cover shown on the left).
