Real-Time Medical Graphics to Diagnose Coronary Heart Disease
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.
