JKU Rector Meinhard Lukas and Vice-Rector Elgin Drda extended an invitation for guests to learn more about the JKU medSPACE. Dean Franz Fellner, professor of Virtual Morphology, shared 3D anatomical images of the human body and prepared the audience to witness two surgeries live, and in real-time. Univ. Prof. Andreas Zierer conducted open-heart surgery, and Univ. Prof. Andreas Gruber conducted a live brain aneurysm procedure. Prof. Matthias Bolz commented on both procedures and also showed a 3D video of an ophthalmic surgical procedure.
