Software Architect and Team Lead
Software Architect and Team Lead

I was leading the Rendering team, which was in fact the core business. From the programming perspective, I took DICOM images from a database and showed them on the screen (as you see in the screenshots). In most cases you apply some transformations to the images, such as grey level (contrast and brightness), overlapping of images taken from the same anatomy, zoom-in and out, measurements, comparisons and very interesting volume processings with 3D movies - think of a heart beating and at the same time the user could rotate the heart and apply certain measurements. It went even deeper than that with techniques such as virtual endoscopy - this looks like a small vehicle guided through a colon.
