Medical Image Analysis and Machine Learning

Image Analysis for Precision Medicine

At a Glance


Our focus is on solutions for microscopy and digital pathology as well as endoscopy and minimally invasive surgery.

Products und Projects

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.


One focus of our work is contract research. We participate in publicly funded projects and provide services to customers in the field of research and development.



Press release

See, feel, train – virtual surgical simulator

Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS will be presenting the prototype of a virtual surgery trainer at MEDICA 2018. “” helps surgeons prepare for individual patient cases prior to surgery, and enables them to practice the surgery. Visitors can experience live at the trade fair.


Press release

Use your microscope as a scanner

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.


3D Panorama Endoscopy for Extending the Field of View

The 3D panorama representation of the operating area allows the field of view to be expanded dynamically during the procedure, which speeds up orientation and improves navigation.


Fluorescence Microscopy – Automatic Analysis of Fluorescence-based Assays: CaeT2


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.


Modular Scanning Solution for Microscopy: SCube®

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.
