We invite you to participate

The SPIE Medical Imaging meeting is the internationally recognized premier forum for reporting state-of-the-art research and development in medical imaging. The event focuses on the latest innovations found in underlying fundamental scientific principles, to technology developments, scientific evaluation, and clinical application. The symposium covers the full range of medical imaging modalities focusing on image acquisition, display, processing, analysis, perception, decision support, and informatics. Broad topics of interest include the following: 

- imaging physics, systems analysis and modeling 
- X-ray imaging and computed tomography 
- ultrasonic acquisition and processing 
- magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) 
- molecular imaging 
- digital pathology 
- emerging image acquisition technologies 
- tomographic image reconstruction 
- quantitative imaging 
- image processing and analysis
- novel contrast enhancement agents
- image and molecular data fusion
- multimodal imaging
- molecular imaging  
- computed tomography
- computer-aided detection and diagnosis 
- computational models 
- image-guided therapies 
- visual rendering of complex datasets 
- visual perception and observer performance 
- technology assessment
- physiological and functional interpretation of image data 
- clinical evaluations of new technologies 
- image data management (storage, retrieval, transmission) 
- medical informatics
- medical diagnostic imaging
- imaging for precision medicine
- deep learning / machine learning / artificial intelligence
- augmented reality/ virtual reality uses
- technology miniaturization/ handheld imaging and probing capability
- digital operating room
- brain informatics

Join your peers where collaboration brings ideas to life and technology to market.  Hear the work, network with leaders in the field, and see the applications of the future.  We look forward to seeing you in San Diego!
