Medical Imaging Conference

November 13-16, 2002
Poster Tours of selected posters are now scheduled at the beginning of each MIC poster session!
(PDF document listing posters included in Tours)

THE IEEE MEDICAL IMAGING CONFERENCE (MIC) is the most productive international scientific meeting on the physics, engineering, and mathematical aspects of nuclear medicine based imaging. In addition, significant contributions in X-ray and other imaging modalities involving ionizing radiation are an emerging area of the MIC. The MIC has evolved from a single session of the Nuclear Science Symposium (NSS) into a sister symposium of equal size, due in large part to the synergisms between the applied nuclear physics and medical imaging communities.

The MIC has retained its focus on nuclear medicine based imaging, the popular single session format, and emphasized the quality of the poster sessions, leading to an increase in the number and quality of the papers presented over the last decade. The awards granted by MIC attendees to their peers indicate the fundamental contributions that have been made to the entire medical imaging community. This conference provides an opportunity for the exchange of valuable ideas and recent advances in the intersection of physics, engineering, and mathematical aspects of medical imaging.

MIC Technical Topics:

  • Emission Tomography Instrumentation and Techniques (PET & SPECT)

  • New Nuclear Medicine and Multi-modality Imaging Geometries and Systems

  • Analytical and Monte Carlo Modeling of Medical Imaging Systems

  • Applications of Detector Materials and Technologies to Medical Imaging

  • High Resolution and Small Animal Imaging Systems

  • Multi-dimensional Image Reconstruction Methods

  • Dynamic Data Acquisition and Processing Methods

  • Quantitative Image Processing Methods

  • Evaluations of Image Systems and Reconstruction Methods

  • Intra-operative Probes and Small Imaging Systems

  • X-ray Computed Tomography and Digital Radiography

  • Other Imaging Modalities such as: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy, Ultrasound, Synchrotron Radiation, Impedance and Biomagnetic/Bioelectric Imaging

Sponsored by:

Sponsored by the Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers in cooperation with the University of Washington.

We particularly encourage the participation of students and encourage those with accepted papers to apply for travel scholarships. Information about the travel scholarships will be posted to this site when the paper reviews are completed.

We welcome suggestions for program focal sessions, workshops, and short courses, and look forward to a high level of scientific exchange at the NSS/MIC in Norfolk.
