MeVisLab is a development environment for medical image processing and visualization. The research and prototyping platform MeVisLab has been developed and used by the MeVis Center for Medical Diagnostic Systems and Visualization in Bremen, Germany.
MeVis develops scientific methods and software for computer assistance in medicine in general and radiology in particular, including computer aided diagnosis, therapy planning and monitoring, and computer aided teaching and training.
One of the main goals of MeVis is to achieve practically useful solutions to clinically relevant problems, incorporating state of the art knowledge from the natural sciences, mathematics and computer science.
