Visualization of Vessels

The research project for the visualization of vessels covers different research areas, e.g., the visualization of intravascular image data and model-based vessel visualization techniques.

Intravascular imaging was supported by the research campus STIMULATE. The intravascular imaging includes optical coherence tomography and intravascular ultrasound. The obtained medical image data provide valuable information about the vessel wall and its morphology which play an important role for diagnosis and evaluation of cardiovascular diseases like atherosclerotic plaque.

Jan Kretschmar, Phd student in Erlangen and staff member at SIEMENS, refined model-based vessel visualization techniques, developed special techniques to enable blood flow simulations and developed new projection-based techniques, that improve the conventional CPR. He cooperates with us leading to a number of joint publications.

Previous projects cover direct volume rendering techniques and transfer function adaptions as well as the vessel visualization with implicit surfaces. The development of advanced transfer functions for MSCT datasets was carried out for the visualization of the cardiac vessel system, including direct volume rendering visualizations and multiplanar reformation.
