R&D Engagement and Science Communication

Fraunhofer MEVIS is opening up its R&D, also integrating the arts and humanities. Our focus is on inclusive life-long education, collaborative production, and scientifically inspired art. Laypersons and experts are invited to get involved and learn, exchange ideas, and disseminate innovative R&D eye-to-eye with our researchers & developers. We are committed to raising awareness about how digital transformation influences health care. The aims are:

  • to make the outcome and impact of our R&D accessible
  • to bolster digital sovereignty for cooperating partners, universities, schools, employees, the media, and the broader public
  • to foster the engagement with and ownership of future technology
  • to stimulate critical dialog within society about the impact of new technology 
  • to create meaningful interactions between diverse players in society and STEM scientists in digital medicine

Engagement is a two-way process involving attention and interaction for mutual understanding and benefit. We aim to support evidence-based discussions by learning and creating together to build confidence in digital medicine and related STEM sciences.

The Beauty of Blood Flow Analysis

This short movie shows the dynamic reconstruction of the blood flow of a healthy human heart. New imaging methods for flow visualizations as shown are integrated into software assistants to help doctors determine how the blood flow changes due to heart diseases without using a catheter. They help calculate how the blood pressure and shear forces on the wall of the blood vessels change for patients with heart valve problems. Additional patient-specific numerical flow simulations could help estimate the benefits provided by a new heart valve before an intervention.
