Deep Learning in Medical Image Formation: Current Status and Future Directions
21 February 2023 • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM PST | Town & Country A 
Deep learning has been increasingly used in image reconstruction, artifact correction, and noise reduction in medical image formation. The objective of this workshop is to update the SPIE Physics of Medical Imaging community on the latest development of deep learning applications in medical imaging formation. At this workshop, experts in the field will provide an overview of the current status and future directions in this area.
