Workshop: X-ray Source Technologies: Fundamental Principles, Technological Advances, and Clinical Needs
Date: Sunday 16 February 2020
Time: 5:45 PM - 7:45 PM
WK 1 Technical Workshop: Physics of Medical Imaging

Technical Workshop: X-ray Source Technologies: Fundamental Principles, Technological Advances, and Clinical Needs

The x-ray source is one of the key components in modern x-ray and Computed Tomography (CT) imaging. X-ray beam characteristics have a profound impact on conventional x-ray and CT image quality. For this workshop, expert speakers were invited to discuss the fundamentals of conventional x-ray tubes, the physical principles that drive source technological innovations, and finally the challenges and opportunities of new x-ray source technology in current and future x-ray based medical imaging. Several blue sky short talks will introduce potentially impactful source technologies.

Speakers:
Rolf Behling, Phillips Medizin Systeme GmbH (Germany) - "Fundamentals of Conventional X-ray Tube Technologies"
Paul Schwoebel, Univ. of New Mexico and SRI International (United States) - "Fundamental Physics Principles that Drive New X-ray Source Developments"
Norbert Pelc, Stanford Univ. (United States) - "Challenges and Opportunities of X-ray Source Technologies in Present and Future Applications"
Blue Sky Talks To Be Announced Later
Workshop: Translation of Deep Learning Technology to the Clinic
Date: Tuesday 18 February 2020
Time: 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
WK 2 Technical Workshop: Image Processing

Technical Workshop: Translation of Deep Learning Technology to the Clinic

Medical AI market is expected to break to 2 billion USD revenue within 5 years. Even though promising we still need to overcome several barriers including technological robustness, clinical validation, regulatory compliance, market acceptance and financial risks. In a number of presentations we focus on the barriers and how to overcome these seen from start-up, regulators, and commercial perspectives.

LIVE DEMONSTRATIONS


Workshop Chairs:
Dr. Lubomir Hadjiiski, Univ. of Michigan Health System (United States)
Co-chair to be announced

Panelists/Speaker(s):
To Be Determined

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION


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.

The Live Demonstration Workshop invites participation from all of the conferences that comprise the SPIE Medical Imaging symposium. We encourage the CAD, Digital Pathology, Image Processing, Imaging Informatics, Image Perception, Physics, and all other conferences to participate.

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. Having an accepted SPIE Medical Imaging paper is not required for giving a Live Demonstration; however, authors of SPIE Medical Imaging papers are encouraged to submit demonstrations that are complementary to their oral and poster presentations.

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.

IMPORTANT DATES

  • January 17, 2019: Deadline for submission
  • January 23, 2019: Notification of acceptance
  • January 30, 2019: Deadline for two-slide summary


JOIN THE WORKSHOP


If you would like to demonstrate at the SPIE Medical Imaging Live Demonstrations Workshop, please send an e-mail before the submission deadline to Lubomir Hadjiiski:
In the e-mail, supply the following information:
  • Title of the demo
  • Names and affiliations (name of institute, city, country) of the demonstrators
  • Short description of the demo, one paragraph minimum. Make sure it clearly describes the technology and application area of the demo. You may cite or include a paper describing the demo.
  • Optionally, describe the public data used in the development or evaluation of the system. Include a link to the data or to a page that describes how to access that data.
  • Optionally, include a link to a video showing the system in action.


NOTES

Please note the following rules and requirements:
  • The accepted demonstrations will be listed online in the workshop program.
  • If there are more proposals than presentation slots in the workshop, the organizers will accept teams for demonstrations based on the quality of the provided description, while also striving to select a representative mix of applications.
  • Each team is responsible for bringing their own equipment. The organization will provide a table and power supply for each demonstration. Demos should be done on a single laptop. If the demo requires an external monitor this is allowed, but there should be no more than one monitor of 25″ maximum size.
  • Participation in the workshop is free of charge, but all demonstrators (those present during the workshop) must be registered to attend the SPIE Medical Imaging Conference.
  • Teams from academia (universities, university medical centers, research organizations), and from industry are invited to participate in this year’s workshop. Demonstrations from industry should be scientific and not commercial in nature; demonstration of research prototypes is highly encouraged.
  • All participating teams will need to provide one or two slides describing their system shortly before the conference from which the opening presentation will be compiled (two-slide summary).
  • After you submit a description, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail. Notification of acceptance or rejection will follow on the date given above.
