IEEE/EG International Symposium on Volume Graphics     2–3 May, 2010     Norrköping, Sweden

Keynote Speaker

Volume Graphics 2010 is proud to announce Anders Persson, MD PhD, CMIV, Linköping University, as keynote/capstone speaker. Monday May 3, 13:30-14:30.

Medical visualization tools must be based on medical user requirements


The practice of medical image diagnosis is currently undergoing a fast transformation. Vast amounts of data can be generated in standard examination and focus is shifting from improving the collection of relevant data for diagnosis to development of effective methods to analyze, visualize, navigate, and interact with medical information. It is now becoming generally accepted in the medical community that one of the most important keys to manage the increasing information flow is the use of 3D and 4D applications.
This talk will take its starting point in state-of-the-art medical visualization and then discuss the need for a research agenda that focuses on the development of the next generation of medical visualization tools, emphasizing the fact that these tools must be based on medical user requirement and workflow studies as well as on new technical developments.


Anders Persson M.D, Ph.D. is the Director at Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV) at Linköping University Sweden. The mission of the center is to develop future methods and tools for image analysis and visualization within health care and medical research. Persson has been working in the field of volume rendering and medical applications for over 20 years. As a radiologist and researcher he has worked on the introduction and validation of new visualization tools for the clinical environment and he has taught medical volume rendering in the clinical practice for more than 15 years. Currently his research is focusing on specialized volume rendering algorithms for specific clinical investigations (CT and MRI) as well as on using new 3D and 4D tools in education and virtual autopsies.
