User Interface Kolloquiums

Vortrag im Rahmen des “User Interface Kolloquiums” am 31. Mai 2012 um 13.15 Uhr im Raum 29-301: Dr. Felix Ritter (Fraunhofer MEVIS Bremen): “Advancing the User Experience in Reading of Medical Images”

Abstract: The analysis of patient data acquired by current image modalities offers previously unattained opportunities for diagnosis, therapy support, and therapy assessment. While image analysis methods have progressed far in recent years, the interaction and user experience in reading these data has not received the same amount of care. The talk will present concepts of the Fraunhofer MEVIS institute that try to challenge several aspects of conventional reading and handling of medical images for diagnosis and intra-operative inspection.

Vita: Felix Ritter is head of visualization and human computer interaction at Fraunhofer MEVIS, Bremen, Germany. His research interests include medical visualization, perception, and human factors in visualization. His current work is focused on the usability of medical workstations and the development of intra-operative user interfaces.
