The Visual and Medical Computing research department/group conduct research and development in the fields of modelling, image processing, real time rendering, multi-touch interaction, virtual and augmented realities (VR and AR), effective visualisation of big data, and others.


Visual Computing Technologies

  • Multi-touch Interaction
  • Augmented Reality
  • Virtual Reality
  • Automated image processing
  • Mixed Reality

Medical Computing Technologies

  • Automatic Model Based Segmentation of Anatomical Structures
  • Deformable Registration of 3D Images
  • Automatic Object Detection

The developed techniques are applied to various real world uses such as:

  • healthcare, e.g. computer aided diagnosis and operation planning
  • digital branding and interactive marketing
