Doctoral Defense by Bernhard Fuerst
Imaging and visualization of anatomy and physiology are the very foundation of Computer Assisted Surgery, and crucially contribute to the success of interventions. The goal of the research presented in this thesis is the introduction of novel image registration techniques as means of transferring pre-operative imaging and planning to the surgical scenario, and intra-operative image acquisition to obtain images just in time and within the surgical site.
17 October 2016, Athens, Greece
13 Papers accepted at MICCAI 2016
13 papers of our chair will be presented at the 19th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Interventions (MICCAI 2016) in Athens (Greece), October 17-21, 2016. With an acceptance rate of approx. 30%; MICCAI is one of the most competitive international meetings in the field.
It is based on full paper submissions and double blind review process.

PhD defense of Ma Meng: „Personalized Perception and Interaction with Medical Information in Mixed Reality Environments”
Medical information is employed in different scenarios, such as education, training, diagnosis, and surgery. Perception and interaction of this information is fundamental, and augmenting the perception through personalized interaction with multi-model data is user specific. The good of this thesis if to investigate personalized perception through development of novel interaction method with the different medical information suitable for students, patients, and doctors.

PhD defense of Christian Schulte zu Berge: „Real-Time Processing for Advanced Ultrasound Visualization”
This work focuses on the development of visual computing techniques for advanced medical ultrasound visualization. At first, techniques for improved 2D B-mode ultrasound visualization are presented where the observer is provided with real-time feedback on the uncertainty present in the image. The second part of this thesis then introduces an orientation-driven ultrasound compounding approach to create high-quality 3D ultrasound volumes. Finally, a novel predicate-based classification technique allows for more meaningful visualization of such data.
