nauris - navigated bronchoscopy

With the increasing complexity of modern medical applications and their close networking in clinical contexts it is increasingly necessary to have specifically designed interactions between humans and machines. In this situation the interfaces must support and guide their users intuitively as they carry out their tasks. This research and development project aimed to incorporate the principles of user-friendliness and user-centred design into interface design. In cooperation with the German Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ) a prototype of a user interface for navigated bronchoscopy, which plays a decisive role in the early recognition of lung cancer, “nauris – navigated bronchoscopy” was developed. This was optimized for intuitive operation, modularity, and clarity, and enables doctors to concentrate on their core competencies of diagnosis and therapy.
