OBJECTIVES To clarify challenges and research topics for informatics in health and to describe new approaches for interdisciplinary collaboration and education. METHODS Research challenges and possible solutions were elaborated by scientists of two universities using an interdisciplinary approach, in a series of meetings over several months. RESULTS AND(More)
The Challenge on Liver Ultrasound Tracking (CLUST) was held in conjunction with the MICCAI 2014 conference to enable direct comparison of tracking methods for this application. This paper reports the outcome of this challenge, including setup, methods, results and experiences. The database included 54 2D and 3D sequences of the liver of healthy volunteers(More)
Endovascular stenting is a minimally invasive technique to exclude an aortic aneurysm or dissection from the circulatory system. Currently, there is no technical aid to guide the surgical staff during the intervention, except the default visualization interface provided with the CT scanner and mobile C-arm. The purpose of our proposed system is two-fold:(More)
This paper discusses an approach to instrument conception that is based on a careful consideration of the coupling of tactile and sonic gestural action across the layers of physical and computational material in coordinated dynamical variation. To this end we propose a design approach that not only considers the materiality of the instrument, but leverages(More)
Recently, terms like material computation or natural computing in foundations of computer science and engineering, and new materiality in cultural studies signal a broader turn to conceptions of the world that are not based on solely human categories. While respecting the values of human-centered design, how can we begin to think about the design of(More)
This paper describes Ozone, a new <i>media choreography</i> system based on layered, continuous physical models, designed for building a diverse range of interactive spaces that coordinate arbitrary streams of video and audio synthesized in real-time response to continuous, concurrent activity by people in a live event. We aim to build rich responsive(More)
Sonic interaction as a technique for conveying information has advantages over conventional visual augmented reality methods specially when augmenting the visual field with extra information brings distraction. Sonification of knowledge extracted by applying computational methods to sensory data is a well-established concept. However, some aspects of sonic(More)
Die intraoperative Anwendung von „augmented reality“ (AR, erweiterte Realität) fand bisher überwiegend im Bereich der Endoskopie statt. Dabei wurde das Kamerabild des Endoskops mittels aufwendig errechneter Darstellungen präoperativer Bildgebung erweitert. Aufgrund des hohen Aufwands und der Komplexität der Systeme hat sich die Technologie bisher nicht(More)
