My research portfolio spans a wide area in the realm of medical image processing. My focus topics are:
- real-time ultrasound processing, including 3D freehand ultrasound, ultrasound reconstruction & compounding
- 2D and 3D image segmentation, multi-modal 3D/3D and 2D/3D/4D registration, and fusion
- robotic imaging & visual servoing
- machine learning & deep learning
This research has led to a plethora of publications as well as medical products through ImFusion‘s customers.
In the course of the research for my Master’s thesis, I was working on heart modeling at Siemens Corporate Technology in Princeton, NJ, USA.
My PhD research topic was interventional ultrasound, i.e. the usage of advanced ultrasound imaging techniques not only for diagnostic purposes but especially to aid physicians and surgeons during interventions / operations. At the Chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures & Augmented Reality at TU München, I was involved in several projects looking at different aspects of intenventional ultrasound:
At ImFusion, I have been working in a diverse team of talented computer scientists, mathematicians and physicists to enable next-generation ultrasound products for the patient’s benefit. Currently, I’m leading the Ultrasound group.
Among other aspects of advanced ultrasound processing, we are investigating the following two topics:
- Trackerless 3D Ultrasound Reconstruction
- Multi-modal 3D Ultrasound Registration, incl. its automatic initialization
