PhD position at Centre for Image Analysis, Uppsala University

Open PhD position at Centre for Image Analysis, Uppsala University

Topic:    Interactive Medical Image Analysis
Deadline: June 7, 2007

Modern medical imaging techniques provide three-dimensional (3D) images 
of increasing complexity. The traditional way of displaying images slice 
by slice is no longer adequate. Better ways of exploring these 
high-resolution images for diagnostic and treatment planning purposes 
are needed. These ways include visualizing the various 3D structures 
directly using image rendering techniques and stereoscopic displays. In 
order to interact with the images, one can use a 3D input device. If 
that device also is equipped with force feedback, then we can exploit 
the sense of touch for the interaction. Such a device is called a haptic 
display and interaction system. Most work so far on stereoscopic and 
haptic display use predefined object surface models. In order to be 
really useful in routine medical work, the system must be capable of 
working directly
with patient-specific data and to generate the relevant 3D structures as 
they are needed for the visualization.

We will now strengthen the project introduced above by admitting a new 
PhD student.
