Visualizing the Future
Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV) is a multidisciplinary research center initiated by Linköping University, Region Östergötland and Sectra AB.
CMIV conducts focused front-line research within multidisciplinary projects providing solutions to tomorrow’s clinical issues. The mission is to develop future methods and tools for image analysis and visualization for applications within health care and medical research.
Despite the primacy of flow, cardiac diagnostics still rely almost exclusively on tools focused on morphological assessment. Flow characteristics are often assumed rather than measured directly. Suitable non-invasive tools for characterizing and measuring flow dynamics are needed to push our medical effectiveness to the next level.
Through a unique collaboration between researchers at CMIV and Sahlgrenska University Hospital the role of brown fat is unraveled. While white adipose tissue (WAT) act as energy buffer, brown adipose tissue (BAT) converts stored energy (WAT) directly into heat. The vision is to find a way to reduce obesity related health problems.
In digital pathology the histology samples are scanned to create digital images of the tissue, which can be analyzed on a computer screen. While the pathologist is still responsible for the evaluation and diagnosis, the digital environment is a valuable tool for image analysis to detect, measure and grade diagnostic findings.
