Medical Imaging Systems

Efficient and powerful medical imaging systems have been assuming a growing and crucial importance in medicine, allowing to deeply examination and understanding on the human body and, therefore, playing an essential role for adequate diagnosis, treatment and follow-up.
To accomplish more efficient and powerful medical imaging systems, many research works have been done in many domains, such as the ones related with medical image devices, signal processing, image processing and analysis, biomechanical simulation and data visualization.
The main goal of the Workshop “Medical Imaging Systems” is to bring together researchers involved in the related domains, in order to set the major lines of development for the near future.
The Workshop “Medical Imaging Systems” will consist of researchers representing various fields related to Medical Devices, Signal Processing, Computational Vision, Computer Graphics, Computational Mechanics, Scientific Visualization, Mathematics, Medicine, Medical Imaging and Hardware Manufacturers. The Workshop endeavours to the contribution of obtaining better solutions for more efficient and powerful medical imaging systems, and attempts to establish a bridge between clinicians, researchers and manufacturers from these diverse fields.

The Workshop "Medical Imaging Systems" will cover topics related with (not exhaustive):

  • image acquisition
  • signal processing
  • image processing and analysis
  • modelling and simulation
  • computer aided diagnosis
  • surgery, therapy, and treatment
  • computational bioimaging and visualization
  • software development
  • virtual reality
  • telemedicine systems and their applications
  • assistive technology
  • computational anatomy
  • medical robots
  • imaging devices
  • hardware systems

Interactive Intelligent Systems

The main focus of the Interactive Intelligent Systems track is to highlight research using the best technologies that push the envelope of both interface and interaction.
When the main source of computing power was located in central computing facilities, those systems were evaluated by their throughput, accuracy, reliability, etc. Today’s computing power resides in true end users. The methods for assessing human-machine systems need to evolve along with the technology. Novel interfaces (e.g. virtual environments and wearable devices) and novel interactions (e.g. haptic devices, touch screens, speech) require novel evaluation methods and new metrics for measuring the effectiveness of these human-machine systems. The problem is hard because new technologies are appearing faster than ever and appropriate methods need to keep up.

One part of the evaluation problem has been addressed through attention to the principles of usability; the usability metrics are efficiency, effectiveness and user satisfaction. The major part of the problem, however, involves assessing whether novel technologies actually provide utility to the end user.
