Center for Biomedical Optics and New Laser Systems
A joint initiative between the Technical University
of Denmark, Risų National Laboratory and Danish Industry
About BIOP The Center for Biomedical Optics and New
Laser Systems, BIOP, is a new Danish initiative where
engineers, physicists, chemists and physicians collaborate
on the development of new biomedical applications
based on the most recent progress in lasers and optical
measurement techniques. The aim is to conduct research
in advanced laser systems and optical measurement
technologies and to apply these systems in dermatology,
ophthalmology and biosensing.
The 3D-Lab is the research and development laboratory
for 3D image processing and reconstruction. The 3D-Lab
is an independent center jointly supported by the
School of Dentistry at the University of Copenhagen,
Copenhagen University Hospital and the Informatics
andMathematical Modeling, Technical University of
THOR Center for Neuroinformatics Human Brain Project
Functional neuroimaging (Positron Emission Tomography
(PET) and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI))
probes in vivo patterns of activity in the human brain.
Anything short of an interactive real-time display
will not fully be able to represent the richness of
these spatio-temporal phenomena.
Mapping visual cortical regions in awake, behaving
monkey using functional MRI (MAPAWAMO)
The overall aim is to perfect the monkey fMRI technique
already in place in order to compare different types
of fMRI analysis with an existing metabolic mapping
standard in the monkey and to compare directly cortical
networks in human and non human primates. We will
use fMRI to map visual cortical regions responsive
to different types of visual stimuli and active in
visual discrimination tasks in monkeys and in humans.
Real Time Multimedia Systems (RTMM)
The project concentrates on the technical issues
involved in systems for Interactive Distributed Multimedia
(IDMM). Current the focus is on construction of Virtual
Seminar Room. The project is part of Distributed Multimedia
- Technologies and Applications which deals with many
aspects of the development and use of distributed
multimedia. The project is supported by the Danish
Research Councils and the Danish National Centre for
IT Research 1998-2001.
Ph.D. project by Lars Pedersen.
Analysis of 2D gel electrophoresis images. The main
goal is to investigate and develop methods to partly
automate and ease the tedious and time consuming task
of locating, quantifying, and matching protein spot
patterns in series of 2D electrophoresis gel images.
To the right is shown an example image with 1900+
proteins represented as dark spots on the bright background.

Automated Segmentation & Analysis of 4D Cardiac
MRI using Statistical Image Analysis
Ph.D. project by Mikkel B. Stegmann
The purpose of this project is to extract volumetric
information from functional in vivo cardiac images
acquired by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and to
automate resource demanding routine post processing
by developing 4D segmentation algorithms based on
statistical image analysis. The project is carried
out as a collaboration between the Danish Research
Center of Magnetic Resonance and IMM.
