The Intelligent Data and Visualization (IDV) is a system which combines numerical simulation with high-definition visualization and large data storage into a single desk. These three sub-systems are interdependent. They are connected to the network to get external information from various imaging systems, and to provide data mining and data processing. The IDV desk is designed for endovascular applications, but there are many other potential applications. The challenge is to provide to surgeons an interface to access all the data of interest at once on multiple displays. The interface must be friendly and very intuitive to the surgeon.

WIMI Web Interface to Medical Information is the web based interface to the IDV desk.
