There has been considerable interest over the last years in the development and evaluation of new translational techniques for clinical image-based planning and interventions at the cutting edge of modern procedures in the hospital. This workshop aims to fill the gap between basic science and clinical applications by focusing on the clinical translations of state-of-the-art methods with a special emphasis on image-based planning and interventions.
Work that is submitted to this workshop should go beyond the proof-of-concept for a specific algorithm or method. Instead, it should be clearly linked to a specific clinical application and either be tested on clinical data or be evaluated by clinical users. Thus, this event aims to bring together world-class researchers and clinicians in the field of image-based interventions and strengthen the link between the computer scientist working in medical image computing and the surgeon, interventional radiologist or radiation oncologist.
