 +Moniqe Meuschke, research assistant at the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, received the Bildverarbeitung-für-die-Medizin (BVM) Award for her dissertation. The BVM Award is presented by the BVM Award Committee for innovative work in the field of medical image processing. In her dissertation she created a visual analysis of blood flow data in cerebral aneurysms. This is a disease of the cerebral artery. The vessel wall is bulging, posing a risk that the vessel will rupture. "Causes for the development and progression, as well as the effects of various treatment options, are poorly understood for these diseases. A computer-assisted analysis of medical data could provide fundamental support for the work of doctors and the decisions to be made," explains the young scientist.<html><br/></html>
 +In her doctoral thesis, Dr. Meuschke visualised the relationships between the vascular mechanics and the internal blood flow that exerts forces on the walls. The goal was to find possible causes for the rupture of the aneurysm and to plan the best possible treatment.
 +<html><br/><br/></html>
 +In 2009, Moniqe Meuschke began her studies of Computational Visualistics with the application subject medicine at the University of Magdeburg. After her master's degree, she did her doctorate in the Visualization Group under Prof. Bernhard Preim. Already during her studies she was interested in medical visualizations that help doctors to recognize diseases as early as possible and thus find the best treatment for patients.

 +{{:start:ma_elke_grabe.jpg?direct&200 |}}Elke Grabe defended her very good Master thesis on using Augmented Reality for maintenance in the railway industry. The work was carried out at SIEMENS Mobility Services and contained a substantial discussion of requirements and a comprehensive UX-based evaluation.

 +{{:start:news_vr_boettcher.jpg?direct&200 |}}Claudia Böttcher, conservator, explored our VR prototype to assemble some 400 pieces of the Epitaph destroyed in World War 2. The pieces can be sorted according to various criteria, they can be grabbed, freely rotated and associated with other pieces. It is a primarily an interactive system but envision some support to check whether two selected pieces may belong together. After the virtual reconstruction, the real composition is planned.

 +Ron Kikinis, Fraunhofer MEVIS/SPL Boston visited us and gave feedback to our VR applications. Jeffrey Heer, University of Washington presented at the Visual Computing colloquium and looked in our bloodflow-related research. Jeffs' talks was probably the talk with the largest audience in the Visual Computing colloquium series.

 +together with the friends’association of the cathedral, the rector and mechanical engineers from the Otto von Guericke University. A live VR demonstration showed how the restorers could use the program.<html><br/><br/></html>
 +In 2020, an appeal for donations is to be launched. It is planned that every donor will be able to buy a symbolic piece of the epitaph.<html><br/><br/></html>

 +{{:start:akademischer_festakt_2019.jpg?direct&200 |}}Dr. Monique Meuschke was awarded with the "Dissertationspreis" for the best Phd thesis of the University at the academic ceremony. Her research aims at a better understanding of cerebral aneurysms by 
 +exploiting blood flow and morphologic features. It results from tight cooperations with fluid research specialists and neuroradiologists. A video from the award ceremony can be found [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsIOBWzWePA|here]].

 +{{:start:dom_foto.jpg?direct&150 |}}The epitaph of the von Arnstedt family is a centuries-old tomb in the cathedral that was destroyed in a bombing raid at the end of the Second World War. Professor Bernhard Preim, Dr. Patrick Saalfeld and Dr. Fabian Klink from the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg want to restore this together with the Domförderverein. From the more than 200 recovered fragments they want to assemble the tomb monument of the canon Friedrich von Arnstedt and his family. The scientists have been working on reassembling the oversized puzzle since autumn 2018. "We don't just want to reassemble the fragments, we also want to create a virtual model so that we can tell the story of the reconstruction," says Bernhard Preim.
