“The best thing about doing my master thesis at Sectra is definitely the people. On a daily basis I was surrounded by people that were willing to help and were interested in my project. I had a great mentor that introduced me to the amazing Sectra culture and I got to cooperate with prominent researchers at Sectra’s research department.

On top of that I got to work with cutting-edge, deep learning techniques to find solutions where the organs present in radiological images can be automatically detected. This information can be used in applications to make the health-care more efficient. It really makes me motivated to work with products that save lives.”

3D in web – Mesh conversion

Converting volumetric medical images to meshes for online rendering

Create a proof of concept implementation which transforms a volumetric DICOM image to several layers of meshes. Each layer should, given approperiate user defined presets, find a good representation of a physical feature, i.e. bones, skin, organs, etc.

Automatic anonymization of volumetric facial data

Create an algorithm that identifies facial features in a volumetric DICOM image and applies a blurring operation to make the face unrecognizable. Internal structures such as bone, organs etc. should be left untouched. The resulting image should be saved as a DICOM image.

Since most of the tooling around this functionality already exists, the main task is to identify the actual pixels to blur.

Touch interaction patterns

Our products are quite complex, and used on different devices, from desktop computers to tablets. The same user can be expected to use different devices eg in the office and working remotely. The different –ologies might have different needs to since the material viewed is different in its nature.

Today there’s no description on what different interaction patterns are to be used to. This leads to the products differing from each other within the Sectra portfolio and time has be used in each product to research what interaction pattern to be used where.By researching what interaction patterns to use for what we can ensure that less time is spent in each project on this, and that the end product is more intuitive for the user.
