Dr. Stefanie Demirci

Type: Master Seminar Module IN2107
SWS: 2+0
ECTS: 4 Credits
Location: MI 03.13.010
Time: see preliminary schedule below
Course Language: English


  • May 10 canceled!

  • Papers are assigned! Please refer to the schedule to find specific topics and literature.
  • Paper assignments will be done on March 1, 2013
  • Literature available for early preparation! Please send your favorite topic to Stefanie Demirci () until February 28, 2013.

  • First information meeting: Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 9-10am in MI 03.13.010


This seminar aims to bring together research works in the field of endovascular stenting procedures in different anatomical regions. Technological advances in diagnostic and intraoperative imaging offer increasingly useful information regarding vascular anatomy and function and are poised to have dramatic impact on the diagnosis, analysis, modeling, and treatment of vascular diseases. Computational vision techniques designed to analyze images for modeling, simulating, and visualizing anatomy and medical devices such as stents as well as the assessment of interventional procedures are therefore playing an important role and are currently receiving significant interest. In this seminar, all aspects of this topic will be addressed.


Learn how to:

  • Read scientific papers
  • Research state of the art on specific topic
  • Write scientific report
  • Do scientific presentation


Please register for the seminar in TUMonline and send an email to Stefanie Demirci () including your name, your birthday, program of study and Matrikelnummer.

Maximum number of participants: 15


Presentation: The selected topic is presented to the other participants (15-20 minutes presentation and 5-10 minutes questions). Use the CAMP templates for PowerPoint CAMPmaster.pot, or Latex: CAMP-latex-template.zip.

Essay: The report (approx. 8 pages without abstract, images and bibliography) has to be submitted one week after the presentation. Please download and use the llncs2e.zip Latex template. If you wish to use other text formatting software, please make sure that the structuring is consistent with the Latex template.

Both the presentation and the report have to be done in English.

Grading: 40% presentation (quality of knowledge transfer), 40% essay (language, structuring, citations), 20% participation (attendance and contribution)


  • Virtual Stenting (2 presentations)
  • Navigated Stenting (2 presentations)
  • Analysis of Stent Effects (5 presentations)
  • Intra-op. Image Enhancement (2 presentations)
  • Validation for Computer Assisted Stenting (2 presentations)
  • Pre-op. Planning Support (1 presentation)


The seminar consists of a preliminary meeting, an introductory meeting and seminar sessions. Each of the sessions will consist of several student presentations. All seminar participants are expected to be present at every session and to actively participate in the discussion.

Some further hints for working with references:

  • JabRef is a Java program for comfortable working with Bibtex literature databases. Handy feature: if you know the PubMed ID for an article, JabRef can import data from there (via "Web Search/Medline").
  • Mendeley is a cross-platform program for organising your references.

If you find useful resources that are not already listed here, please tell us, so we can add them for others. Thanks.
