This conference will cover all aspects of image formation in medical imaging, including systems using ionizing radiation (x-rays, gamma rays) or non-ionizing techniques (ultrasound, optical, thermal, magnetic resonance, or magnetic particle imaging). Papers of a theoretical nature, or reporting new experimental results, or describing applications of artificial intelligence techniques are invited. Topics of particular interest include novel methods for image formation, experimental methods and results regarding image performance, algorithms for image reconstruction and correction, detector materials and electronic design, analytical and computer modeling of imaging systems, and physics of contrast media. Work directed toward the imaging of human subjects, small animals, or tissue specimens are welcome. The conference will also cover various specific imaging applications resulting from the above-mentioned general imaging framework, for example cardiovascular or neuroimaging applications. Original papers are especially requested in the following areas:

  • properties of scintillating, photoconductive, or other sensor materials
  • novel sources of radiation
  • image reconstruction methods (e.g., for CT, tomosynthesis, SPECT and PET, optical imaging, MRI, etc.)
  • machine-learning approaches to image formation
  • multi-energy (spectral) x-ray and CT imaging
  • computer simulation of imaging systems including models for radiation sources, imaged objects, physical interactions, and detectors
  • phantoms (physical and numerical)
  • photon counting techniques including hardware, image reconstruction, image quality, and applications
  • imaging methods for radiation therapy
  • radiation (e.g., optical) and signal transport
  • radiation dose, dosimetry, and dose effects (risk), as well as possible stratification.
Devices
  • advanced multi-slice or cone beam CT systems
  • advanced radiographic, fluoroscopic, or angiographic systems (including phase contrast and diffraction)
  • ultrasound, MRI, optical, thermal, magnetic particle imaging (and other non-ionizing radiation systems)
  • small animal imaging systems
  • nuclear medicine imaging methods (SPECT and PET)
  • multi-modality imaging devices
  • low-cost imaging devices with global health applications.
Applications
  • cardiovascular imaging
  • neuroimaging
  • mammographic imaging
  • interventional imaging
  • imaging applications in therapy (e.g., radiation therapy, surgery, in-vivo verification)
  • advanced applications (clinical, translational, preclinical, basic science, biomarkers)
  • novel medical imaging for precision medicine applications.
