  • Bauer, Armelle; Paclet, Florent; Cahouet, Violaine; Dicko, Ali-Hamadi; Palombi, Olivier; Faure, François; Troccaz, Jocelyne (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    We propose a framework to investigate a new way to learn musculoskeletal anatomical kinetics using interactive motion capture and visualization. It can be used to facilitate the learning of anatomy by medicine and sports ...
  • Oeltze-Jafra, Steffen; Preim, Bernhard (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Annotations of relevant structures and regions are crucial in diagnostics, treatment planning, medical team meetings as well as in medical education. They serve to focus discussions, present results of collaborative decision ...
  • Baer, Alexandra; Huebler, Antje; Saalfeld, Patrick; Cunningham, Douglas; Preim, Bernhard (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    This paper presents the design and execution of a comparative experimental between-participant study with 42 participants. We investigated depth perception comparing a 2D display with a glasses-free 3D autostereoscopic ...
  • Müller, Markus; Helljesen, Linn E. S.; Prevost, Raphael; Viola, Ivan; Nylund, Kim; Gilja, Odd Helge; Navab, Nassir; Wein, Wolfgang (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Real-time three-dimensional (also known as 4D) ultrasound imaging using matrix array probes has the potential to create large-volume information of entire organs such as the liver without external tracking hardware. This ...
  • Wieckowski, Adam; Stopp, Fabian; Käseberg, Marc; Keeve, Erwin (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an established standard for both, medical and industrial volumetric imaging. To compute a 3D volume, multiple 2D x-ray projection images of an object of interest are acquired from ...
  • Yu, Weimin; Zheng, Guoyan (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    In this paper we present a new control point-based 2D-3D registration approach for a deformable registration of a 3D volumetric template to a limited number of 2D calibrated C-arm images and show its application to a ...
  • Smit, Noeska N.; Haneveld, Berend Klein; Staring, Marius; Eisemann, Elmar; Botha, Charl P.; Vilanova, Anna (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    In medical imaging, registration is used to combine images containing information from different modalities or to track treatment effects over time in individual patients. Most registration software packages do not provide ...
  • Lindholm, Stefan; Forsberg, Daniel; Ynnerman, Anders; Knutsson, Hans; Andersson, Mats; Lundström, Claes (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    The purpose of this work is to investigate, and improve, the feasibility of advanced Region Of Interest (ROI) selection schemes in clinical volume rendering. In particular, this work implements and evaluates an Automated ...
  • Solteszova, Veronika; Birkeland, Asmund; Viola, Ivan; Bruckner, Stefan (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    In real-time volume data acquisition, such as 4D ultrasound, the raw data is challenging to visualize directly without additional processing. Noise removal and feature detection are common operations, but many methods are ...
  • Läthén, Gunnar; Lindholm, Stefan; Lenz, Reiner; Borga, Magnus (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Visualization of contrast enhanced blood vessels in CT angiography data presents a challenge due to varying concentration of the contrast agent. The purpose of this work is to evaluate the correctness (effectiveness) in ...
  • Swoboda, Nicolas; Moosburner, Judith; Bruckner, Stefan; Yu, Jai Y.; Dickson, Barry J.; Bühler, Katja (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Neuroscientists investigate neural circuits in the brain of the common fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster to discover how complex behavior is generated. Hypothesis building on potential connections between individual neurons ...
  • Kozlíková, Barbora; Jurcík, Adam; By ka, Jan; Strnad, Ondrej; Sochor, Jirí (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Analysis and visualization of molecules and their structural features help biochemists and biologists to better understand protein behavior. Studying these structures in molecular dynamics simulations enhances this ...
  • Waltemate, Thomas; Sommer, Björn; Botsch, Mario (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Three-dimensional cell visualization is an important topic in today's cytology-affiliated community. Cell illustrations and animations are used for scientific as well as for educational purposes. Unfortunately, there exist ...
  • Oeltze-Jafra, Steffen; Pieper, Franz; Hillert, Reyk; Preim, Bernhard; Schubert, Walter (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Biological multi-channel microscopy data are often characterized by a high local entropy and phenotypically identical structures covering only a few pixels and forming disjoint regions spread over, e.g., a cell or a tissue ...
  • Ulrich, Christine; Lobachev, Oleg; Steiniger, Birte; Guthe, Michael (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    The spleen is one of the organs, where the micro-structure and the function on that level are not completely understood. It was for example only recently found that is has an open circulation, which distinguishes it from ...
  • Wan, Yong; Otsuna, Hideo; Kwan, K. M.; Hansen, Charles (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Selecting structures from volume data using direct over-the-visualization interactions, such as a paint brush, is perhaps the most intuitive method in a variety of application scenarios. Unfortunately, it seems difficult ...
  • Zadicario, Eyal; Carmi, N.; Ju, Tao; Cohen-Or, Daniel (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Image guidance of medical procedures may use thermal images to monitor a treatment. Analysis of the thermal images by the physician may be time consuming and confusing because the thermal image includes multiple outliers. ...
  • Faltin, Peter; Chaisaowong, Kraisorn; Kraus, Thomas; Merhof, Dorit (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Assessing surfaces of segmentations extracted from 3D image data for medical purposes requires dedicated extraction and visualization methods. In particular, when assessing follow-up cases, the exact volume and confidence ...
  • Al-Taie, Ahmed; Hahn, Horst K.; Linsen, Lars (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Estimating and visualizing uncertainty in medical image segmentation has become an active research area due to the necessity of making medical experts aware of possibly wrong segmentation decisions. Still, to our knowledge ...
  • Raidou, Renata G.; Breeuwer, Marcel; Vilanova, Anna; Heide, U. A. van der; Houdt, P. J. van (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Efficacy of radiotherapy treatment depends on the specific characteristics of tumorous tissues. For the determination of these characteristics, clinical practice uses Dynamic Contrast Enhanced (DCE) Magnetic Resonance ...
