CAMILIS - Computer-Aided Minimally Invasive Liver Surgery
Project Duration: 2014-2016
Funding Source: EUREKA/EuroStars
Cooperation Partners: Cascination AG, University of Bern Karolinska Hospital, Sectra
Minimally-invasive surgery combines the advantages of open surgery (direct visualisation and direct ultrasound) with those of percutaneous procedures . High spatial instrument guidance accuracy during resection or ablation is essential in order to achieve a R0 situation without compromising FLR. Stereotactic (i.e. computer-assisted) technology will effectively allow precise tracking and guiding of surgical instruments together with a suitable visualisation of anatomical structures and precise orientation relative to the tumour.
Carl Zeiss Stiftung Visualization Laboratory
Project Duration: 2015-2017
Funding Source: Carl Zeiss Stiftung
The goal of this project is to setup a visualization lab with a high-resolution visualization wall, supporting stereoscopic projection and multi-touch interaction. The system is driven by multiple HD projectors, which receive their input from a high-end rendering cluster. The lab enables demos, multi-user collaborations as well as public outreach.
Collaborative Visual Exploration and Presentation
Visualization plays a crucial role in many areas of e-Science. In this project, we aim at integrating visualization early on in the discovery process, in order to reduce data movement and computation times. Within many research projects, visualization is currently often established as the last step of a long pipeline of compute and data intensive processing stages. While the importance of this use of visualization is well known, facilitating visualization as a final step is not enough when dealing with e-Science applications. We address the challenges arising from the early collaborations enabled by these in-situ visualizations, and we investigate which role visualization plays to strengthen such collaborations, by enabling a more direct interaction between researchers.
