Data analysis and programming

We help with specialised solutions

Automatic procedure quality assessment systems are used to automatically assess the quality of procedures. These systems are used to improve the efficiency and accuracy of quality assessment processes. They can also be used to assess the skills of clinical staff, making them a useful tool for medical education.

Are you looking for tailor-made solutions for data collection and programming? Whether you come from another simulation centre or the clinic, we have extensive experience in implementing different algorithms and webapps to solve your needs.

It is often the combination of data collection and software that offers unique opportunities, for example in point-of-care data annotation, secure data management, workflow automation and the like.

We assist with data collection from simulated environments, animal houses, as well as clinical environments - among other things by automating and synchronising annotations and data at the moment of recording. This has increasing relevance for data science, clinical research, and clinical trials. We also have experience in programming and implementing various tools and algorithms in web apps, desktop apps, and the cloud.

Medical technology solutions for simulation training

- what our engineering team is working on in the "garage"

Phantom Design Lab:
We produce medical phantoms, which are a physical model of the human body used for medical purposes. Our phantoms can be used for training new medical professionals, testing new medical devices, and conducting research based on development for training on specific learning objectives, among others. We have developed phantoms at all levels of realism. Previous development projects are based on mapping bio-mimicking materials, mainly for advanced use such as training in Robot Assisted Surgery. Simpler phantoms have been developed - and can be developed or modified by agreement. Read more

Virtual reality technology is becoming increasingly popular in a variety of industries, and the medical field is no exception. Medical virtual reality simulators are used to train future surgeons and other medical professionals in a safe and realistic environment. These simulators can be used to recreate a variety of medical scenarios, allowing practitioners to get a feel for what they will be dealing with in the real world. This kind of training is invaluable in preparing future doctors for the challenges they will face in practice.

Ultrasound Lab
An area in the garage where everything centers around ultrasound. Testing of materials for phantoms, testing of AI algorithms, development of feedback systems, introduction to ultrasound, etc. It serves as a core service for especially AI projects at CAMES and for collaborators.

We assist with data collection from simulated environments, animal houses as well as clinical environments - among others by automation and synchronisation of annotations and data in the moment of recording. We also have extensive experience in programming and implementing various tools and algorithms in web apps, desktop apps, and cloud. Read more

Development of simulation phantoms for gastroscopy

In collaboration with Rigshospitalet, CAMES organised a tailor-made simulation training course in upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. CAMES Engineering assisted the course by producing phantoms that added silicone plates with ulcers for endo-clip insertion and silicone plates with polyps for cold-scar endoscopic resection. Finally, an esophagus (esophageal stricture) was fabricated to train balloon-assisted enteroscopy. In this procedure, a balloon is inserted into the esophagus and inflated to stretch out the constricted area.


Symptoms and signs arising from the upper part of the digestive tract are often vague and imprecise. Therefore, it may be necessary for the doctor to perform a gastroscopy. A diagnostic test that allows the doctor to look inside the patient's stomach. The instrument used to perform this is a flexible telescope, also called a gastroscope. There have been rapid developments in gastroscopic capabilities. Today, various procedures can be performed through the gastroscope, such as removing neoplastic polyps and stopping bleeding from a wound.

Robot-assisted phantoms: full set of abdominal organs

The Phantom Design Lab and CAMES Engineering have a strong focus on the development of robot-assisted phantoms. They are both complex but also simple in their design. The development process focuses on collaboration between physicians and engineers to ensure the most realistic, anatomically correct and practical design for the model. We aim to create a highly realistic environment with clear indications of the procedure being practised - and where individual doctors can perfect their craft.

At the same time, we strive to form a versatile and complete set of abdominal organs, so that each doctor can tailor a procedure to his or her needs. To meet these needs, CAMES Phantom Lab, together with CAMES Engineering, uses a wide range of tools. Precisely to be able to cope with any task. This includes segmenting CT scans for high accuracy and realism, 3D CAD programs to model in 3D and construct molds, and 3D printers to manufacture the products.

Robot-assisted pyeloplasty model

CAMES Engineering often collaborates with students in the production of products for undergraduate projects and theses. This model was made together with Magnus Meyer Møller from DTU Health Technology, where a model was made for the Robot-assisted Pyeloplasty procedure. Two models were produced. The first model was an internal stenosis, where there is a constriction on the ureter, while the second model consisted of an external compression, where blood vessels impede the downflow of urine, which defends the accumulation of urine in the renal pelvis.

The process consisted of producing an anatomically correct model and testing whether the model was adequate for the procedure. Watch here.

3D printed training hearts for cardiology

The project was initiated at the request of the Department of Cardiac Diseases at Gentofte Hospital. The aim was to visualise patient-specific cases - with various irregularities - before the patient went to the operating table. In collaboration with the Department of Medical Technology at Rigshospitalet (CIMT), a heart from a CT scan was segmented - and a heart was printed. As it was just for visualisation, it was printed in PLA plastic.

The patient often has the CT scan one to two days before he/she lies on the table. Therefore, time is an important factor. Printing the full heart took over 20 hours. So instead, work was done to segment the parts of the heart that are of interest to the doctor.

The possibility of virtual reality is also being explored, as the time perspective is shorter.

Bolus production for difficult anatomies in radiotherapy

In radiotherapy treatment for skin cancer, a silicone-like mat, called a bolus, is used to spread the radiation and avoid damage to the surrounding skin. For large and regular anatomies, a generic mat can be purchased for the purpose. But for awkward anatomies, such as noses and ears, patient-specific solutions may be better.

In this project, CAMES has a strong collaboration with the Department of Medical Technology (CIMT) at Rigshospitalet and the Radiation Therapy Department at Rigshospitalet, where we produce patient-specific bolus mats based on scans.

In this project, we investigated the best 3D scanners to avoid putting patients in a CT scanner. And we've developed optimised code for our CAD programme to ensure we deliver an accurate but quickly produced product.
Bolus falls into the 'custom medical device' category of the MDR (medical device regulations). We therefore also take care of registration with the Danish Medicines Agency and the associated quality assurance.

Washing plugs for multistage blood pressure cuffs

When blood pressure cuffs need to be washed, a plug is used at the end of the pressure cable. This is done to avoid water in the cuff and later in the blood pressure devices. These are no longer sold individually from the supplier, but with a new cuff.

Therefore, the Child and Adolescent Clinic at Rigshospitalet asked the Department of Medical Technology (CIMT) and CAMES if this task could be solved internally. CAMES has produced a mat with 6x6 silicone plugs, which can soon be ordered via the 'brick system' throughout the region. Currently they are available to order through the Medical Technology Department and their 'Medusa' system.

The project has offered a test and validation of the plugs' properties, in collaboration with the Children and Youth Clinic. This has led to new guidelines for cuff washing and drying times.

Ear clips for keloid treatment

Patients with keloids, scar tissue that grows uncontrollably, are most often treated with surgery or steroid injections and pressure (sometimes both). For the latter, precise pressure is important, as too much pressure will provoke more growth, while too little pressure will leave room for continued growth.

In this project, we are investigating whether these clips can be produced patient-specifically using 3D scanning and CAD software. The clips are produced on our SLA printer with biocompatible resin that is ISO-approved for continuous skin contact. These clips fall into the category of 'custom medical devices' in the MDR (medical device regulations). CAMES is therefore responsible for registration with the Danish Medicines Agency and the associated quality assurance.
