Fraunhofer MEVIS develops real-world software solutions for computer-aided medicine, bridging between medical imaging, image-guided therapy, and healthcare informatics – bringing benefits to patients, customers and partners.
SAFIR supports the whole interventional workflow from planning to assessment utilizing segmentation, registration, simulation, optimization and visualization methodology. To facilitate fast deployment of new applications targeted at specific clinical questions or scientific projects, SAFIR is designed as a modular framework, which allows for re-using information processing methods and customization of algorithms.
Yen Tzu Chang is the recipient of the artist residency jointly hosted by Fraunhofer MEVIS and Ars Electronica in the framework of the “European Digital Art and Science Network.” Ars Electronica created the international initiative to enable artists to participate in residencies at prestigious research institutes to connect science with digital art approaches. Chang will present the results of her work during the performance of “Whose Scalpel” at the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz from September 7 to 11.
Optimizing therapy planning for cancers of the liver
Radioembolization is a therapy method used for liver tumors that are uncurable with surgery or chemotherapy. Thorough development of an individual planning is important for successful treatment. Within the SIRTOP project, the Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing MEVIS in Bremen is developing sophisticated computer algorithms to make therapy planning faster and more precise. The research team will present their initial results at several upcoming conferences.
