MedViz – a Research & Development cluster in Bergen. MedViz is a cluster of groups performing interdisciplinary research in advanced image analysis and visualisation bridging the gap between “bench and bedside”. MedViz also includes imaging physics and fundamental biomedical translational research. Our mission is to promote the development of biomedical and clinical imaging technologies with the ultimate goal of improving diagnosis and treatment of patients. MedViz wants to develop new clinical methods for potential commercialisation by means of denovo software for analysis, decision support and visual communication.

ABSTRACT
Haász
The population ​in​  developed countries is aging and this represents ​huge ​medical and socioeconomic challenges. With
increasing age the brain undergoes neurobiological changes that contribute to cognitive decline, and ​occasionally also
the development of neurodegenerative disorders such ​as ​dementia. A popular model posits that disconnection of brain
areas is an important factor in age-related cognitive decline. Magnetic resonance imaging methods such as diffusion
tensor imaging and resting-state fMRI allow the investigation of disconnection hypothesis at the macroscopic level. This
talk will describe findings on connectivity ​patterns​  in normal aging and age-associated diseases.
Lundervold
We are about to bring our project on "Aging - cognition, imaging and genetics" https://sites.google.com/site/agingcognitionimaging/
a step further ​,​ towards "longitudinal data analysis using mixed-effects models and graph theory".  Being involved in this
endeavour – comprising more than 100 healthy middle-aged and older ​people, ​participa ​ting ​in three study waves, ​t​hree
years apart ​ - ​the talk will discuss multidisciplinarity and methodological challenges.
Finally, some perspectives will be given on how this methodological machinery and experience  might interact with other
MedViz projects such as the "Brain-Gut" and the "Kidney" projects.

Metematisk poliklinikk

Matematisk poliklinikk 24.03.2015: Fra olje til medisin

In collaboration with MedViz, the research project "Computational medicine: Numerical models for medical images and signals" (http://computationalmedicine.no) will organise a quarterly Mathematics Clinic ("Matematisk poliklinikk"), an open forum for transdisciplinary and spirited discussions, set in an informal atmosphere at Litteraturhuset i Bergen.
 
"Matematisk poliklinikk" will present mathematical-medical developments and challenges to the public, with the additional ambition of facilitating the interaction (convergence)
of medical and biological thinking and the mindsets & problem solving abilities in the computational mathematics community.
 
The first meeting​, "​Fra olje til medisin​", starring Jo Røislien ​and​ Jan Nordbotten, ​takes place on ​March 24 2015 ​at 7 p.m. ​​​ More information can be found at http://www.litthusbergen.no/program/2015/03/matematisk-poliklinikk-fra-olje-til-medisin/
