Sectra Visualization Table

I just got back home from the excellent EG VCBM 2012 conference and am currently working on my conference highlights write-up. In the meanwhile though, I wanted to show you a video of something else I saw at VCBM: the Sectra Visualization Table. It can be used for surgical planning, medical education and virtual autopsies, but it probably would be quite the conversation starter at a dinner party as well ūüėČ We have posted about this before two years ago, but I think this new video shows off the cool features better:

This is an excellent example of a good collaboration between research and industry. More information about it can be found here and here. I so wouldn’t mind having one of these to play around with ^^

Registration still possible for VCBM (aka Eurographics Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and Medicine) next week!

Next week¬†on September 27 to 28 the third edition of the Eurographics Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and Medicine¬†(VCBM) will be in full swing in¬†Norrk√∂ping, Sweden. For us medical visualizationers (is that even a word?) this is one of the most important events to attend, in my humble opinion, because¬†the topics presented are all uniquely relevant to the medvis field. Just take a look at the program¬†and you’ll see what I mean.

In any case, I wanted to let you know it is still possible to register for this amazing event here¬†and that¬†I hope to meet you all there! I (Pelvis Lady) am¬†presenting a poster with Thomas Kroes (aka Exposure Render Guy), so come say hi if you like ūüôā

The Conference Calendar

Inspired by the world-famous VRVis conference calendar at, I’ve added and maintaining our very own medical visualization conference calendar. It features a full calendar view here¬†and some imminent dates appear in the sidebar of this website to the right. The goal of this is to get a quick overview of upcoming submission deadlines, notification dates and conference dates for venues that are known to feature medical visualization research. The full calendar view also allows you to import one or more of the the submission deadline, notification and conference calendars to your own calendar.

It’s still a work in progress for now, so please contact me¬†or leave a comment here if you have an update or addition to suggest.
