Given underlying computer simulations, this work provides a way to visualize Aortic Dissection (AD) in a realistic manner. Based on Virtual Reality (VR), the solution provides a visual user experience that is immersive: while conservative methods might require a researcher to sight a huge amount of medical images, VR allows the researcher to examin...

The human organism is a highly complex system that is prone to various diseases. Some diseases are more dangerous than others, especially those that affect the circulatory system or the aorta in particular. The aorta is the largest artery in the human body. Its wall comprises several layers. When the intima, i.e. the innermost layer of the aortic w...
Conference Paper
Virtual Reality (VR) sets up a virtual environment providing an (audio)visual user experience by creating an artificial world where a user is directly placed into. To experience VR, one is usually equipped with a so-called Head Mounted Device (HMD). Today’s VR products are used in different fields such as training simulations, gaming and even video...

Virtual Reality (VR) is a promising future. It sets up a virtual environment providing an (audio)visual user experience by creating an artificial world where a user is directly placed into. Extensible by haptic systems, it allows to simulate lifelike experiences to any user. Over the last years, VR hardware has more and more turned into something t...

Project
In the Lead project a consortium of scientists from biomechanical-, civil-, electrical-, and mechanical engineering, computer science, mathematics, and physics from TU Graz has set itself the goal of unraveling the cause and the formation of the various stages of an aortic dissection (AD). Advanced computational tools and algorithms will be developed to assist clinicians with the diagnosis, treatment, and management of AD patients. In addition, related topics such as the optimization of implants, the better design for tissue engineering and of coatings and stent platforms for drug delivery will be investigated. https://www.tugraz.at/projekte/aortic-dissection/home/
Project
To develop Virtual Reality (VR) applications for the medical domain. Examples are facial and cranial reconstructions where an immersive preoperative planning and inspection can help to achieve an esthetic looking outcome.
