Department of Computer Science

The condition of coronary arteries decides on the therapy of patients suffering coronary heart disease, a number one killer in the western world. CT and PET technology combined with real-time 3D graphics offer non-invasive ways to diagnose the state of these arteries. In my talk I will portray such a 3D graphics environments developed at the University of Paderborn, implemented on modern graphics cards, and used at a Heart and Diabetes Center in Germany. I will also talk about challenges in the education of our Bachelor and Master students, in order for them to be able to tackle such complex, real world problems.

Sponsored by the Center for Lifelong Learning & Design.
