Project development

Institution: University of Bergen

The focus of the Physioillustration project is is to develop novel graphics data representations, visual representations, occlusion handling, visual guidance and storytel-ling, zooming, interaction and integration of physiological models and medical imaging. The visualization technology will be developed and evaluated on multiple scale levels, from molecular machines, up to the organ level. This work has been carried out within the PhysioIllustration research project (# 218023), which is funded by the Norwegian Research Council. Additionally, we would like to thank Helwig Hauser and Visualization group in Bergen for useful ideas and feedback.
