(The Eurographics Association, 2021)Nowadays, many surgical procedures require preoperative planning, mostly relying on data from 3D imaging techniques like computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. However, preoperative assessment of this data is ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)Craniotomy is a procedure where neurosurgeons open the patient's skull to gain direct access to the brain. The craniotomy's position defines the access path from the skull surface to the tumour and, consequently, the healthy ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)Machine learning is becoming increasingly popular in the medical domain. In the near future, clinicians expect predictive models to support daily tasks such as diagnosis and prognostic analysis. For this reason, it is ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)Electronic Health Records (EHRs) contain rich medical information about patients, possibly hundreds of notes, lab results, images and other information. Doctors can easily be overwhelmed by this wealth of information. For ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)Current blood vessel rendering usually depicts solely the surface of vascular structures and does not visualize any interior structures. While this approach is suitable for most applications, certain cardiovascular diseases, ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)We present an approach for computing camera animations composed of optimal views to support the visual exploration of blood flow data using cerebral aneurysms as major example. Medical researchers are interested in hemodynamic ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)Four-dimensional phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (4D PC-MRI) allows for a non-invasive acquisition of timeresolved blood flow measurements, providing a valuable aid to clinicians and researchers seeking a better ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)We propose a novel method to cut and flatten vascular geometry that results in an intuitive mapping between the 3D and 2D domains. Our approach is fully automatic, and the sole input is the vessel geometry. We aim to ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)Diffusion MRI (dMRI) tractography permits the non-invasive reconstruction of major white matter tracts, and is therefore widely used in neurosurgical planning and in neuroscience. However, it is affected by various sources ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a brain disease that is diagnosed and monitored extensively through MRI scans. One of the criteria is the appearance of so-called brain lesions. The lesions show up on MRI scans as regions with ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)Pediatric brain tumor radiotherapy research is investigating how radiation influences the development and function of a patient's brain. To better understand how brain growth is affected by the treatment, the brain structures ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)Augmented and virtual reality (XR) are potentially powerful tools for enhancing the efficiency of interactive visualization of complex data in biology and medicine. The benefits of visualization of digital objects in XR ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)Real-world sculptures that display patient imaging data for anatomical education purposes have seen a recent resurgence through the field of data physicalization. In this paper, we describe an automated process for the ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)4D Flow MRI is a recent promising technology that is able to capture blood flow information within the heart chambers over a cardiac cycle. To accurately study the flow inside the chambers, there is a need for a high quality ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)In this paper, we propose an averaging method for expert segmentation proposals of microbial organisms, resulting in a smooth, naturally looking segmentation ground truth. The approach exploits a geometrical property of ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2021)The visual communication of biomedical processes draws from diverse techniques in both visualization and biomedical illustration. However, matching these techniques to their intended audience often relies on practice-based ...
