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.
This site was conceived and set up by Charl Botha. Currently there are four 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.
- Paul Rea: Paul is a Senior Lecturer in Human Anatomy and Licensed Teacher of Anatomy at the University of Glasgow, U.K. He is the Programme Leader for the MSc Medical Visualisation and Human Anatomy a joint taught degree between the University of Glasgow, U.K. and the School of Simulation and Visualisation, The Glasgow School of Art. He has supervised research projects in augmented and virtual reality, 3D modelling and animations, photogrammetry, digital museum products and a number of medical visualisation projects. He has been the lead anatomist on major projects digitising the human body for the creation of educational and training materials.
If you would like to contribute actively to this medical visualisation resource by joining the team, please contact me so that I can create a ‘contributor’ account on medvis.org with which you can edit the wiki and/or submit articles to the blog. I also have a limited number of special GMail for Domains medvis.org email accounts to give to new contributors!
