A delegation of academics, physicians and students from the Faculty of Fundamental Medicine of the Buryat State University in Ulan-Ude visited the ICCAS on 9th July 2014.
After Professor Thomas Neumuth had warmly welcomed the guests from the capital of the Russian Republic of Buryatia, Mario Cypko and Stefan Franke gave insights into current research work at the ICCAS. Mario Cypko presented previous results and further projects relating to the digital patient model. He initiated the guests into the development and use of Multi-Entity Bayesian Networks for improving the therapeutic decision making. Following, interesting questions about actuality and scope of the applicability and about privacy had to be answered.
During the live demonstration in the ICCAS concept-OR Stefan Franke was closely surrounded by the participants. Whether surgical milling tool, ultrasound with navigating puncture needle or navigation system for ENT surgery – the modern devices were carefully examined. Unfortunately, the guests had very little time in their bags, because the ICCAS was only one of many program points of the Leipzig stay.
The Buryat State University is one of the oldest universities in Siberia and an important establishment for modern science and higher education in the Russian Republic. Professors and students of the Faculty of Medicine regularly organize fact-finding trips to technologically advanced institutions in Germany and other European countries to promote the concept of Integrative Medicine using traditional and modern methods of treatment and innovative technologies and to forge collaborations.
