About

medvis.org is a community site dealing with all things Medical Visualization. You’ll be able to find datasets and software to play with, articles to read, and the (perhaps not so) latest breaking news on things that medical visualizationers (ha ha) find interesting.

About us

This site was conceived and set up by Charl Botha. Currently there are three active contributors:

  • Charl Botha: Charl currently works at vxlabs. Before this he was a assistant professor in Medical Visualization at the TU Delft in the Netherlands. His specialties include medical visualization, data visualization, (medical) image processing and analysis, and software engineering.
  • Kai Lawonn: Kai is currently an assistant professor for medical visualization at the University of Koblenz – Landau, Germany. He defended his PhD thesis in the exciting field of illustrative medical visualization. Before this he studied Mathematics at the Free University Berlin.
  • Noeska Smit: Noeska is currently a medical visualization PhD student at the Computer Graphics and Visualization group at the TU Delft. Her research project is called The Virtual Surgical Pelvis and aims to create a detailed 3D model of the pelvic area that can be used in education and pre-operative surgical planning. Before becoming so interested in the pelvis, she studied Computer Science and even before that, she was a radiographer.

  1. Hello, I hope you can help me. My background is architectural visualization and has been for the last 9 years or so. I am very interested in medical visualization and learning what techniques etc I need for a move career wise. Is medical knowledge/qualifications required at all? Could anybody suggest any forums/resource material/tutorials I could learn from?

    Any advice would be gratefully received

    Kind regards

    Paul
