The long and fruitful collaboration between the Visualization group and Fraunhofer MEVIS Bremen lead to another nice success. Benjamin Köhler, currently student assistant in our group, will be awarded with the BVM-Award from the German medical image processing society, acknowledging his extraordinary Bachelor thesis. The thesis was based on an internship at Fraunhofer MEVIS Bremen, supervised jointly by Dr. Jan Klein (Fraunhofer MEVIS) and Bernhard Preim. Ben’s work was integrated in the MEVIS activities on the reconstruction of HARDI data, a relatively new kind of data for analysing human white matter. Ben’s work was an extraordinarily deep analysis of fiber reconstruction with global optimization methods. The award will be presented at the BVM workshop where Ben will present the results of his current research on visualizing blood flow data and now may also report on his award-winning work.
