Our key activities are the development of microscopy and scanning systems combined with automatic image analysis of cells and tissues as well as the support of medical diagnosis in laboratory and clinic.
Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS will be presenting the prototype of a virtual surgery trainer at MEDICA 2018. “HandsOn.surgery” helps surgeons prepare for individual patient cases prior to surgery, and enables them to practice the surgery. Visitors can experience HandsOn.surgery live at the trade fair.
Berlin-based VMscope GmbH licenses and distributes iSTIX® developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS. The software allows for any camera-equipped microscope to be used as a manual whole-slide scanner for the digitization of glass slides, materials, surfaces or other microscopic structures. It is compatible with any microscope and camera and integrates seamlessly into the current microscope-centered workflow.
Haptic-visual Learning System for Surgical Operations: HaptiVisT
With the interactive “HaptiVisT“ training system, we support the training of surgeons for cochlear implantation. For this purpose, real CT data are segmented by the inner and middle ear (“CI Wizard“) and the structures depicted therein are used for the “HaptiVisT“ system.
The “SCube®“ scanning system was introduced at the trade fair analytica 2016. “SCube®“ is the solution for digitizing and analyzing biological samples in light field and fluorescence microscopy. Simple integration of the “SCube®“ system into your applications is easily possible.
