Small Bowel Motility Imaging Software

Motasso by SOHARD AG in Switzerland is a medical imaging application for small bowel motility studies. Small bowel motility studies measure contractions of the stomach and small intestines when fasting and eating.

As discussed here, "measuring by hand is enormously time consuming and impedes implementing methods in clinical practice. A new program is being developed to semi-automatically analyze small bowel motility. By only setting the measuring point and defining the measuring direction the program can automatically assess small bowel diameter changes and display them as a plot over time."

Here's the application, clearly based on the NetBeans Platform:

Update: Got a better picture from Urs Bill, the lead developer of this project, above! Thanks Urs! Seems like NetBeans IDE for bowel movements. :-)


Shit, what a platform! (don't change the word order in this sentence) :)

Maybe you could post a picture of the process of "measuring by hand"?

@Roman: As you might guess, the viewer/editor has been implemented using the visual library. This visual library came in very handy for this task but it took me more than one go to use it properly :-)
