Every two years the VCBM group awards the Karl-Heinz Höhne Award for Medical Visualization to a young scientist in the MedVis field. Candidates for this award focus their innovative research on visualizations clearly related to medical questions.
This year, the MedVis award was won by Rocco Gasteiger, of the University of Magdeburg Visualization Group. He has won this award for his work on the visual exploration of cerebral blood flow in aneurysms.We would like to congratulate Rocco and the Magdeburg Visualization group with this well-deserved award. If you want to find out more about Rocco’s work, you might want to check out his two IEEE TVCG papers, presented at VisWeek 2011 and 2012:
