Selected Video

Medical Augmented Reality - An Overview over the Projects at NARVIS
Video Length: 00:05:30
In collaboration with docmed.tv, which is a web based multi-media platform for communicating advances in the field of health care, we created a video showcasing the ongoing research at NARVIS lab, which is located at Klinikum Innenstadt in Munich and run by the department of trauma surgery, LMU, Munich and our chair. For all topics presented in the video, we have student projects available.

Machine vision is a technologically and economically important field of computer vision. It eases automatization of inspection and manipulation tasks, which in turn enables cost savings and quality improvement in industrial processes. Usually, 2D or intensity images are used for such applications. However, thanks to several technological advances, nowadays there are sensors available that allow depth or 3D measurements with high resolution, frequency and accuracy at a reasonable cost. Such 3D data enables new applications that are difficult or impossible to implement with 2D images only.

3D deformation measurement - Seminar by Amir Events.HajiRassouliha
Quantification of skin properties can provide a better understanding of its behaviour in many applications, such as the wound healing process, the effects of ageing, the process of wrinkle formation, and skin and breast surgeries. Skin is a complex tissue that is anisotropic, heterogeneous, nonlinear, and viscoelastic. Several methods have been developed to characterise the complex mechanical behaviour of skin in-vivo or in-vitro, such as during biaxial, compression, suction, or indentation tests on tissues.

Three awards at MICCAI 2016!
We are happy to mention that three of our papers at MICCAI 2016 have been given awards to in Athens. Two represent the best papers between 810 international papers submitted to the conference in 2015 (.025%) and one is given to 5 Young Investigators over 760 papers submitted in 2016! Congratulations to the awardees.
