    *Please note that each number corresponds to the breakout room where you can view the demonstration.

    The CAD Live Demonstration workshop will be hosted as a live interactive event through Zoom. The audience will be able to move around to visit - and interact with - all the proffered demonstrations at their leisure, much like the usual in-person experience. The event will also include a poll to vote for the top 3 best demonstrations and a Certificate of Merit will be given to the demonstration voted as the overall favorite.

    The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for systems and algorithms developers to show off their creations. The intent is for the audience to be inspired to conduct derivative research, for the demonstrators to receive feedback and find new collaborators, and for all to learn about the rapidly evolving field of medical imaging.

    This workshop features interactive demonstrations that are complementary to the topics of SPIE Medical Imaging. Workshop demonstrations include samples, systems, and software demonstrations that depict the implementation, operation, and utility of cutting-edge as well as mature research.

    The session will include a Certificate of Merit Award presented to one demonstration considered to be of exceptional interest. We invite all workshop visitors to vote for three of their favorite demonstrations, with the final winner chosen from the top scorers by a group of appointed judges.
