Keynote – From image analysis research to software for clinical, biomedical research and health environments, Mattes Julian

Since around half a century, algorithms have been developed for the computational analysis of medical images. They are conceived for the purpose of diagnostics, computer assisted intervention planning and therapy, visualization of anatomical structures, etc. Nowadays, medical imaging devices or microscopes are equipped with software packages for image analysis and visualization. In this talk, several general aspects of commercial and open source medical and bio-medical image computing software packages are presented. Furthermore, by means of different examples from our own experience the way from methodological research to practical application is illustrated.
