First Idea

The idea of an own company for high-tech image processing was started when Volker Daum, Dieter Hahn, Marcus Prümmer and Joachim Hornegger worked together at the Pattern Recognition Lab at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. The company Chimaera GmbH can rely on a profound and longterm theoretical background in the fields of medical image processing (reconstruction, segmentation and registration), as well as in pattern recognition.
