MIC Festival 2020

10th December 2020
MIC Festival 2020

The 3rd MIC-Festival “Driving the Evolution of Medicine with Imaging” combines international expertise and local enthusiasm in a joyous, cooperative and holistic setting.

A keynote lecture will widen our horizon beyond medical imaging, followed by impulse presentation on the topics shaping our future: Image-guided Therapy, Translational Imaging and Big Data. The MIC nodes invite you to take part and interact actively in a virtual poster tour through the most innovative and exciting topics related to medical imaging presented by young scientist. Finally, a dynamic roundtable discussion with representatives of all MedUni Vienna clusters aims to highlight the future role of medical imaging and enables to ask arising questions.

Siemens Healthineers & MIC
At Siemens Healthineers, our mission is to enable healthcare providers to increase value by empowering them on their journey towards expanding precision medicine, transforming care delivery, and improving patient experience, all enabled by digitalizing healthcare. An estimated five million patients worldwide everyday benefit from our innovative technologies and services in the areas of diagnostic and therapeutic imaging, laboratory diagnostics and molecular medicine as well as digital health and enterprise services.


Dedalus & MIC
Als multimodales PACS bietet DeepUnity von Dedalus mit DeepUnity Diagnost und dem DeepUnity Medical Archive eine Lösung für die Radiologie, die auch die Visualisierung von OCT-Daten sicherstellt. Die Lösung ist einfach einzubinden und kann aus dem Studien-Kontext auf externe Applikationen zugreifen. Weiter gibt es viele Messwerkzeuge, Visualisierungsoptionen und Segmentierungen. 
Als zentrales PACS des AKH Wien stellt DeepUnity ein standardkonformes Interface dar, das Cluster-Daten jeder Form unterstützt und den Anknüpfungspunkt für alle Nodes bildet. 

Fujifilm VisualSonics
FUJIFILM VisualSonics specifically focuses on developing ultrasound technology that has been scaled to much higher frequencies than commonly found in many of the conventional ultrasound systems on the market today. As a result, our ultrasound platform provides images at resolutions that far exceed any other system available on the market; as fine as 30 micrometers, clearly differentiating our company from our competitors.
