TUE Building

Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) plays a prominent role at both national and international levels through its research and educational programs in the engineering science and technology domain. The TU/e contributes to solving the major societal issues by focusing on the Strategic Areas of Energy, Health and Smart Mobility. In the health area more than 250 researchers from different departments are working together to develop advances technical applications. TU/e has a strong commitment to the valorization of knowledge: translating research results into successful innovations. This may for example take the form of contributions to the development of new products or processes for industry, and the setting up of new enterprises.

The BioMedical Image Analysis (BMIA) group of the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering (BME) of the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) has a strong focus on the quantitative analysis of multiresolution, multi-valued, multi-modal image data and on the comprehensive visualization of the outcome of this analysis. Recently, research has been initiated into the evaluation and visualization of uncertainty (accuracy & precision) in the analysis outcome. The importance of the evaluation and visualization of uncertainty in the field of healthcare is growing, since regulatory bodies and clinical guideline committees more and more demand or advice that the uncertainty involved in the application of medical equipment is specified to the user.
