Picturing complex data may become considerably easier as a solution to display combined information from multiple data formats, currently applied to biomedicine, emerges.
In November 2003, partners in the IST project MULTIMOD succeeded in registering and animating the bone model of a young patient. They developed the DataManager system, whereby the 3D bone models, as derived from CT data, were registered and animated with kinematical data derived from the patient’s gait analysis (walking motion).
The technique enables the programmer to combine multiple representations and display modalities using the same set of data.
Several specialised MAF applications are being explored. The hip-op(c) surgical planning programme is being re-written. Programmers are also writing a new application, FuncEv, which will combine data from multiple sources into a unified representation, allowing the orthopaedic surgeon to perform a complete functional evaluation of a patient’s knee prosthesis.
As for the future Viceconti says, "The sky is the limit. We are doing our very best to build a European biomedical industry success story out of this project."

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
