Call for
This conference will provide a forum for researchers involved in development and application of computer-aided detection and diagnosis systems. Original papers are requested on all aspects of CAD, including segmentation, pattern recognition, feature extraction, classifier design, machine learning, workstation design, human interaction, radiomics, database construction, and system performance evaluation. CAD methods involving any medical imaging modality are encouraged, including but not limited to x-ray, CT, MRI, nuclear medicine, molecular imaging, optical, ultrasound, endoscopy, macroscopic and microscopic imaging, and multi-modality technologies.

A workshop featuring real-time demonstrations of algorithms and systems will be held during the conference. This workshop is intended to be a forum for developers to exhibit their software, find new collaborators, and inspire the attendees. All participants of the SPIE Medical Imaging Symposium are invited to submit a proposal for a demonstration. More information will be provided at a later date.

A CAD grand challenge will be organized as part of the conference in conjunction with the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) and the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) . This event evolved from the well-received LUNGx Grand Challenge conducted as part of the 2015 CAD Conference, the CAD Grand Challenge's panel discussion held during the 2016 SPIE Medical Imaging Symposium and will extend the successful PROSTATEx Challenge conducted as part of the 2017 CAD Conference. More information on the CAD application and modality for the challenge will be provided at a later date.
