Call for
This conference is primarily concerned with applications of medical imaging data in the engineering of therapeutic systems. Original papers are requested in the following topic areas:
  • Image-guided procedures
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Computer-assisted therapy and therapy planning
  • Robotic interventions and surgical tools
  • Localization technologies and navigation systems
  • Tracking and calibration
  • Intraoperative imaging
  • Novel image-to-patient registration for surgery and intervention
  • Mathematical modeling to guide and understand therapy
  • Modeling of intraprocedural changes
  • Modeling and analysis of procedures and procedure workflows
  • Techniques in population-specific and patient-specific model generation
  • Image-based models for characterization of tissue and disease properties
  • Medical image-based simulation and training
  • Validation/evaluation
  • 3D visualization
  • Novel interfaces for therapy and visualization of data
  • Augmented, virtual, and enhanced reality
  • Clinical applications and technology integration
  • High performance computing for real-time modeling and/or large dataset visualization
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence for surgical/interventional applications
  • Interventional/therapeutic assessment and prediction
  • Surgical/interventional data science
  • Safety and standards for image-guided and robotic procedures
  • Other related areas.
Submissions that cross over between this conference and others at SPIE Medical Imaging, and which would be appropriate for combined sessions, are also welcomed.

Awards: Papers from student authors are particularly encouraged; there is a competition for the best student paper, and limited student travel awards are also available. In addition, there is a conference-specific competition, the young scientist award. This is a prize awarded to first authors of high quality papers where the applicant is the first author of a paper and an early career scientist (students or postdoctoral fellow).
