The Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing MEVIS celebrates 20 years

On September 14, the Institute celebrated its twentieth anniversary with an official ceremony in Bremen’s City Hall.

In recent decades, medicine has undergone a fundamental change. The computer has entered medical practices and clinics. X-ray and ultrasound images are now digitally recorded. Today, MRI and CT scanners deliver three-dimensional images and videos of the inside of the body. The Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing MEVIS in Bremen has contributed significantly to the field and developed a range of innovative software methods. On September 14, the Institute celebrated its twentieth anniversary with an official ceremony in Bremen’s City Hall. Founded as a nonprofit Ltd in 1995, it became part of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in 2009. Today, it is one of the leading institutes for computer support in image-based medicine worldwide.
