At the 48th Annual Conference of the German Society for Biomedical Engineering (DGBMT 2014), several ICCAS employees contributed interesting lectures.
Dr. Kerstin Denecke (DPM) spoke about the development of apps supporting the mobile health care. The lecture was met with great enthusiasm. Jens Meier reported about “Standardization of ENT Oncological Anamnesis and Evaluation using Levenshtein Distance Measure”. At a special CURAC-session, Marianne Maktabi (MAI) submitted her research findings on concepts and requirements for an advanced clinicwide Operating Room Control Center. Dr. Claire Chalopin (DPM) gave a poster presentation on “Vascular structure tracking in intraoperative 3D ultrasound data during brain tumor resection”.The poster contribution of Max Rockstroh (MAI) dealt with the “Approach to the detection of the use of medical devices based on the analysis of video stream”.
This year conference which took place at Hannover Congress Center, primarily addressed the increasingly complex environment of biomedical engineering by involving more clinical topics. The participants established and strengthened contacts and enjoyed instructive looks beyond their own research borders through the wide range of issues.
