In close cooperation with the FAU and the Universitaetsklinikum Erlangen, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS) focuses mainly on the field of medical engineering. The “medical image processing” group researches and develops image analysis procedures intended to support doctors’ diagnoses, computer-assisted detection of pre-cancerous lesions and computer-assisted interventions.
Main use cases are procedures and systems for the analysis and interpretation of endoscopically and microscopically obtained imaging data for diagnostics, laboratorial medicine (e.g. hematology) as well as life science.
The Fraunhofer IIS operates the Medical Technology Test and Demonstration Center (METEAN). METEAN’s goal and main focus is to connect synergistically with local partners from the industry, sponsors, and the university hospital to combine medical research competences and clinically ambulant practical expertise, thereby joining research ideas with medical and clinical necessities and opening new perspectives for innovative and market-driven products.
