This conference will provide a forum for researchers involved in development and application of computer-aided detection and diagnosis (CAD) systems in medical imaging. Original papers are requested on all novel CAD methods and applications, including both ‘conventional’ and deep learning approaches. CAD has found increasing medical applications since its inception a few decades ago and it continues to be a hot topic, especially with the proliferation of artificial intelligence (AI) in many aspects of daily life. Thus, the CAD conference is soliciting papers in the broad sense of CAD-AI, including topics also beyond detection and diagnosis with an emphasis on novel methods, applications, learning paradigms, -omics integration, and performance evaluation. A detailed list of topics can be found below. Applications in all medical imaging modalities are encouraged, including but not limited to X-ray, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, molecular imaging, optical imaging, ultrasound, endoscopy, macroscopic and microscopic imaging, and multi-modality technologies.

NEW FOR 2022 Joint Session with the Image Perception conference: “Translation of CAD-AI methods to clinical practice; are we there yet?” We invite papers on comparisons in performance between CAD-AI and humans, retrospective studies comparing CAD-AI output to original clinical decisions, reader studies, and studies of CAD-AI in clinical practice.

LIVE DEMONSTRATIONS WORKSHOP A workshop featuring real-time demonstrations of algorithms and systems will be held during the conference. This workshop is intended to be a forum for developers to exhibit their software, find new collaborators, and inspire the attendees. All participants of the SPIE Medical Imaging Symposium are invited to submit a proposal for a demonstration. More information will be provided at a later date.

TOPIC AREAS: FOR THIS CONFERENCE ONLY During the submission process, you will be asked to choose the 2-3 most appropriate keywords (one ‘application’ and up to two ‘topics’) from the following lists to assist in the review process.

Choose one keyword from the following applications list: Choose up to two keywords from the following topics list: ;
