Graduation success for Eclipse intern, Jarda Kotesovec

Graduation success for Eclipse intern, Jarda Kotesovec

7th September 2011

Congratulations to Jarda Kot?šovec, Eclipse's most excellent intern, who has just graduated from the University of West Bohemia, Plze?, with a Masters degree. Jarda's special field of study for his thesis was Pattern Recognition, with the chosen topic for his dissertation stemming from work carried out here at the Department of Opthalmology at Addenbrookes in Cambridge.
Jarda plans a short break but will be back soon at the end of a Skype connection to assist with OsiriX plug-in developments, as required, in the New Year.

Bell Equine PACS Installation

Bell Equine PACS Installation

12th June 2011

An early adopter of Eclipse practice management software, Bell have added the Eclipse PACS module to their installation. Initially sticking with their DICOM vendor-supplied PACS when Eclipse was installed, Bell decided this year that they would benefit from the integration with the Animal Histories and the simplicity of Eclipse PACS over their existing system.

Vets had been impressed with the speed with which the system was installed and commissioned on-site, and the minimal downtime they experienced.

With DICOM images integrated into animal histories, diagnostic work has become much more straightforward. When viewing an animal record, reports, prescribed products, lab tests and diagnostic images can all be accessed quickly and easily in one location.

Jarda Kotesovec, Eclipse intern, chooses Addenbrookes Opthalmology problem for thesis study

Jarda Kotesovec, Eclipse intern, chooses Addenbrookes Opthalmology problem for thesis study

24th February 2011

Jarda is currently completing his master studies on Mathematical department at The University of West Bohemia in Pilsner www.zcu.cz/en/

He has chosen to work with opthalmologist, Paul Meyer, at Addenbrookes Hospital to improve stablisation when imaging micro-vascular circulation through the transparent conjunctiva of patients attending the clinic. The technique is capable of resolving individual red blood cells and is the first step towards the determination of an accurate vessel map and a robust classification of the vascular hierarchy. These are essential before the blood flow itself can be properly analysed but stabilisation is a major problem, as Paul explains:

"Microscopic observations on human subjects are always confounded by movement artefact. Furthermore, when a subject attempts to fix his/her gaze on a target, their eyes are not immobilised, but make continual small excursions."

Such movements of the microscopic field must be stilled before analysis of the structures within it and Jarda's research may contribute to resolving the issue with further software improvements.
