MITI is an interdisciplinary research group. It deals with the development of innovative diagnostic procedures and therapeutic solution concepts for minimally invasive surgery.
The research group was founded in 1999 at the Klinikum rechts der Isar of the Technical University of Munich. The motivation is to develop patient friendly methods for diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, which are mainly applied in surgery and gastroenterology.
Since its inception MITI sets value on interdisciplinary work. Competences from engineering, industry and the medical field meet and a know-how centre for medical technology emerges. Therefore, MITI is a reliable meeting point for everyone, who is looking for innovative solutions in the medical technology field.
The cooperation between physicians and engineers leads to research with emphasis on the relevance for clinical practice and the usability in daily routine. This enables a fast and focused product development.
Through the interdisciplinary approach, MITI works in a broad spectrum of application areas:
- Image Processing and Navigation
- Innovative Therapies
- Mechatronic Support Systems and Instruments
- Model-based Surgery and Telematics
- Simulation and Training
MITI is managed by PD Dr. med. Dirk Wilhelm and Daniel Ostler.
