Welcome to CMIV
Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV) is a multidisciplinary research center initiated by Linköpings universitet, Landstinget i Östergötland and Sectra AB.
CMIV conducts focused front-line research within multidisciplinary projects providing solutions to tomorrow’s clinical issues. The mission is to develop future methods and tools for image analysis and visualization for applications within health care and medical research.

CMIV's Virtual Reality theater will be inaugurated with an international symposium.
Permanent member of the Nobel Assembly for Physiology and Medicine has been appointed as the new Chairman of the Board of Directors for CMIV
Hans Ringertz, MD, PhD, F.F.R.RCSI, FRCR(HON), FACR(HON), permanent member of the Nobel Assembly for Physiology and Medicine has been appointed as the new Chairman of the Board of Directors for Center for CMIV.
The new Dual Source CT SOMATOM Definition Computer topography scanner from Siemens will be installed at CMIV at the end of the summer. This is a scanner using two X-ray sources and two detectors at the same time. It enables us to scan every beating heart at any heart rate and at the lowest radiation dose possible. New clinical research opportunities will be possible with the dual-energy scanning option.
At ISMRM 2006 four papers from CMIV will be presented. In one of the papers Petter Dyverfeldt will give a presentation on "Quantification of Turbulence Intensity by Generalizing Phase- Contrast MRI".
NVIS and CMIV develops techniques for virtual autopsies
Four CMIV researchers have been awarded project grants of a total value of 4.9 MSEK distributed over three years from the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet): Magnus Borga "Advanced signal processing methods for high quality functional magnetic resonance imaging", Jan Engvall "Pressure and flow in heart and vessels", Toste Länne "Mechanical properties of the vessel wall - importance for cardiac function" and Anders Ynnerman "A knowledge driven visualization pipeline for direct volume rendering".
