Medical Computing


Our research focus is on Medical Computing – the synthesis of Computer Graphics, Image Processing, Medicine, and Physics. The increasing amount of data acquired by state-of-the-art medical imaging devices requires more sophisticated approaches for processing this image data. This comprises the initial image processing (image enhancement, image registration), the anatomical modeling based on these images, the automated analysis for the purpose of diagnosis and intervention planning, and the visualization of both, the image data as well as analysis results and model knowledge. For this, we develop new algorithms and employ recently introduced hardware for massively parallel processing (GPGPUs).

Teaching and Education

As a research group of the Computer Science department of the Technische Universität Darmstadt we are also involved in teaching and education. On a regular basis, we organize specific seminars focusing on several topics related to Medical Computing and we offer a lecture on Medical Visualization each summer term. In addition, students are welcome to work in our group on a variety of research topics for fulfilling their Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis.
