The latest cutting-edge research and developments in medical imaging technologies including advances in computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) technologies, image-guided procedures, and ulatrsonic imaging were featured at SPIE Medical Imaging 2013.
Highlights of this internationally recognized, multidisciplinary event included nine technical conferences with the addition of a new conference on digital pathology, a plenary talk by Geoffrey Rubin, George Barth Geller Professor of Radiology and Bioengineering Chair, Department of Radiology, Duke University Medical Center, exploring the evolution of computed tomography, nine keynote presentations from leading experts, a panel discussion, 13 technical courses and workshops, and several other special events.

Best Student Paper Awards
Symposium chairs Nico Karssemeijer and Ehsan Samei recognized conference finalists and announced the first and second place winners of the Best Student Paper Awards.
First place was awarded to Pankaj Daga (Univ. College London) for "Susceptibility artifact correction by combining B0 field maps and non-rigid registration using graph cuts."
Tied for second place were Asha Singanamalli (Case Western Reserve Univ.) for "Identifying in vivo DCE MRI parameters correlated with ex vivo quantitative microvessel characteristics: a radiohistomorphometric approach" and Ke Li (Univ. of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health) for "How to determine detection performance of a DPC-CT system from a conventional cone beam CT system."
Posters, panels, and more
Poster presentations offer both the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the author, but allow many more important advances to be shared at the event. SPIE Medical Imaging also provided the chance to exchange ideas through panel discussions and demonstrations.
