The group conducts theoretical, experimental, and applicative research on the structure and function of biological and non-biological systems. The current research is focused on: 1. BIOMEDICAL IMAGE ANALYSIS and MACHINE VISION Design and development of image processing and analysis techniques, driven by challenging applications in the fields of biomedicine and machine vision. The introduction of new imaging modalities, which has expanded the role of medical imaging beyond mere visualisation, gave the radiologist and surgeon at their disposal a great palette of different images, that provide information on both the anatomy and physiology. Image processing and analysis is nowadays used increasingly throughout the clinical track of events, not only within diagnostic settings, but prominently in the areas of planning, performing and evaluating surgical and radiotherapeutical procedures. We conduct research in areas including multidimensional multimodality image registration, image enhancement, image segmentation, image guided surgical and radiotherapeutical interventions, and cell, tissue and organ morphometry. During the last two decades, machine vision systems, which perform automated visual inspection, have been applied to a variety of manufacturing challenges, all with the goal of improving quality and productivity in the manufacturing process. Machine vision unifies illumination, imaging, image processing and analysis, and material handling technologies to provide non-contact localisation, characterisation, and manipulation of stationary or moving objects. We design and develop high speed, high quality, and high resolution industrial applications, which require innovative, customised solutions. 2. CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM Study of the regulation of waves and oscillations in the vascular system. We are testing the hypotheses that the system regulating human blood flow is deterministic and that it can be described as a system of coupled oscillators. Several simultaneous physiological time-series related to the cardiovascular system are noninvasively measured. They are analysed using both linear and nonlinear methods. By application of such analyses to signals measured in subjects with different states (e.g. diabetes mellitus and acute myocardial infarction), insight into the underlying physiological mechanisms of the oscillatory processes and their couplings is expected to be gained. 3. BIOLOGICAL CELL and BIOMECHANICS OF THE HIP Study of the membranes of red blood cells of different animal species theoretically and experimentally by taking into account anisotropic membrane properties and membrane and cytoskeleton composition. In particular, we study the effect of different substances on the vesiculation of the membrane. Increased contact stress in the hip joint may accelerate the degenerative processes in the hip joint. A mathematical model for calculating the contact stress distribution in the hip during gait has already been constructed by analyzing the data on the resultant hip force obtained from laboratory observations. The model will help to plan and perform certain operative interventions in such a way to achieve an optimal contact stress distribution in the hip joint.
