Keynote talk

Visual Computing in Healthcare – from the Research Lab into the Hospital

Professor Nigel W. John
Bangor University

Prof Nigel John leads a specialist unit in Wales called the “Advanced Medical Imaging and Visualization Unit”, established in 2011 and fundedby the Wales government. The unit employs eight computer science researchers who collaborate with clinicians from many different medical specialities to identify and implement visual computing solutions within a hospital. We have undertaken a wide variety of projects covering simulation of medical procedures for training, image analysis, intra-operative assistance, and anatomy education. In this talk Prof John will present a few case studies from the unit’s project portfolio and discuss some of the challenges involved in deploying visual computing solutions in a hospital setting.
