Novel technology that shapes Radiology: IMAGINE 2013

Novel technology that shapes Radiology: EIBIR presents IMAGINE
Thursday March 7 to Sunday March 10 2013

IMAGINE aims to stimulate interaction between imaging researchers and radiologists. Internationally leading academic and industrial research groups present their latest developments in medical image analysis and image-guided interventions and at the interactive software demonstration sessions the visitors get hands-on experience with developed techniques and tools.


  • One lecture (oral presentation) session per topic (90 minutes), room U
  • Two software demonstration sessions per topic: hands-on experience of the techniques and tools. The first session is right after the oral presentation (60 minutes), room U; a second session is held the next day at 12:00-13:00.
