mRay! because "Every Minute Counts"
For stroke diagnostics every second matters. The journal "Radiologie Magazin" promotes our app mRay in this case.
"Die jüngst veröffentlichte DAWN-Studie zeigt, dass die mechanische Thrombektomie bei selektierten Patienten auch später als sechs Stunden nach Symptombeginn noch wirksam ist. In einem vom baden-württembergischen Ministerium für Soziales und Integration geförderten Projekt wird nun am Universitätsklinikum Freiburg evaluiert, inwiefern sich die Selektion peripherer Patienten verbessern lässt. Mit einer mobilen Lösung sollen durch die Verwendung von automatischen Bildanalysetechniken die Verlegezeiten und die damit verbundenen Rekanalisationszeiten verkürzt werden."

Funding by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy
We are pleased to inform you that the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy is supporting us in the context of an innovative project. The project title is "Development of a hybrid device for the real-time visualization of optical 2D image data streams and pre-interventionally acquired, medical 3D image data based on a marker-free registration".
The purpose of this project is to extend our mobile radiological platform mRay with a real Augmented Reality function. The physician can use this method to display CT or MR images in 3D above a patient and thus gain an impression of the anatomy.
From the application text: The integration of preoperative image data into the workflow in the operating theater is a problem that is becoming increasingly urgent considering the progression of powerful imaging methods. Essentially, displaying image information during surgery is about providing the information specific to the context without disturbing the intervention.
Experimental augmented reality techniques, in which pre-operative data are rendered on 2D live camera users, suffer from the fact that the patient's position requires complex tracking systems and multimodal markers, which must remain patient for days or weeks between imaging and surgery. We present a new approach. By combining with a third imaging component, a depth camera with a static arrangement relative to the camera, the patient should be registered without a marker and a registration of the preoperative data on the camera image becomes possible. Thus, the position of important structures in the body can be explored before the first cut.
mbits and Image - strong Partners
In addition we are very happy to announce that the mbits imaging GmbH has started a long-term partnership with Image Information Systems GmbH in Rostock. The contract has been signed on August 1st 2016, and was signed jointly with all managing directors (in the top picture from left to right: Dr. Michael Müller, Dr. Arpad Bischof, Mike Jensen, Dr. Ingmar Gergel). The cooperation will focus on the joint distribution of the world-wide unique "MED-TAB", the first DICOM calibrated, medical Tablet. More information can be found at www.image-systems.biz and www.med-tab.com . mRay will be used as a software on MED-TAB (among others).
