CAMP & AR History

The Chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures (Informatikanwendungen in der Medizin) was created on 15th of October 2003 under the direction of Professor Dr. Nassir Navab. The main objective of the chair is to play the role of a strong research and educational link between medical and computer science communities.

The chair aims at introducing new elements into the curriculum of the computer science students in order to better prepare them for a growing market and an exciting research field. In terms of research and development, the chair focuses on recovery and understanding of the workflow of medical procedures and on development of incremental, radical and fundamental technologies, which allow the physicians to improve the quality of medical procedures. Computer technology is playing an important role in 2D/3D/4D anatomical and functional imaging, reconstruction, segmentation, registration, navigation and advanced visualization.

The chair is interested and active in these subjects with a particular emphasis on surgical workflow, medical augmented reality, multi-modal rigid and deformable registration and intra-operative tracking and navigation. In January 2005, Prof. Gudrun Klinker, Ph.D. and her existing research group on augmented reality (FAR), with particular emphasis on industrial applications, joined the Chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures.

Due to the common needs for tracking, navigation and advanced visualization technologies in both medical and industrial applications, this addition strengthens the chair and turns it into one of the strongest international research groups in augmented reality. Prof. Navab and Prof. Klinker are both members of Steering Committee for IEEE and ACM International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality.

The chair has numerous collaborations with hospitals, various research centers on medical imaging and providers of healthcare and medical technologies. The chair also enjoys collaboration with many industrial partners interested in augmented reality, tracking, navigation and advanced visualization.
