    Oeltze, Steffen; Klemm, Paul; Hillert, Reyk; Preim, Bernhard; Schubert, Walter (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    The toponome of a cell describes the location and topological distribution of proteins across the cell. In toponomics, the toponome is imaged and its inner structure and its semantics are investigated in order to understand ...
  • BrainCove: A Tool for Voxel-wise fMRI Brain Connectivity Visualization 

    Dixhoorn, André F. van; Milles, Julien R.; Lew, Baldur van; Botha, Charl P. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Functional brain connectivity from fMRI studies has become an important tool in studying functional interactions in the human brain as a complex network. Most recently, research has started focusing on whole brain functional ...
  • Visually Guided Mesh Smoothing for Medical Applications 

    Moench, Tobias; Kubisch, Christoph; Lawonn, Kai; Westermann, Ruediger; Preim, Bernhard (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Surface models derived from medical image data often exhibit artifacts, such as noise and staircases, which can be reduced by applying mesh smoothing filters. Usually, an iterative adaption of smoothing parameters to the ...
  • Interactive Residual Stress Modeling for Soft Tissue Simulation 

    Wu, Jun; Bürger, Kai; Westermann, Rüdiger; Dick, Christian (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Residual stress is the stress which remains in a deformable body in the absence of external forces. Due to the release of residual stress after cutting, soft tissues will shrink and the wound will open. Thus, to realistically ...
  • Sketch-based Image-independent Editing of 3D Tumor Segmentations using Variational Interpolation 

    Heckel, Frank; Braunewell, Stefan; Soza, Grzegorz; Tietjen, Christian; Hahn, Horst K. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    In the past years sophisticated automatic segmentation algorithms for various medical image segmentation problems have been developed. However, there are always cases where automatic algorithms fail to provide an acceptable ...
  • From Imprecise User Input to Precise Vessel Segmentations 

    Diepenbrock, Stefan; Ropinski, Timo (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Vessel segmentation is an important prerequisite for many medical applications. While automatic vessel segmentation is an active field of research, interaction and visualization techniques for semi-automatic solutions have ...
  • Lowest-Variance Streamlines for Filtering of 3D Ultrasound 

    Soltészová, Veronika; Helljesen, Linn Emilie Sævil; Wein, Wolfgang; Gilja, Odd Helge; Viola, Ivan (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Ultrasound as an acoustic imaging modality suffers from various kinds of noise. The presence of noise especially hinders the 3D visualization of ultrasound data, both in terms of resolving the spatial occlusion of the ...
  • Combining B-Mode and Color Flow Vessel Segmentation for Registration of Hepatic CT and Ultrasound Volumes 

    Keil, Matthias; Laura, Cristina Oyarzun; Drechsler, Klaus; Wesarg, Stefan (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Multimodal registration of intraoperative ultrasound and preoperative computed tomography imaging is the basis for percutaneous hepatic interventions. Currently, a rigid registration is performed manually by the surgeon ...
