The Medical Imaging Conference (MIC) is the foremost international scientific meeting on the physics, engineering and mathematical aspects of nuclear medical imaging. As the field develops, multi-modality approaches are becoming more important. The content of the MIC reflects this, with a growing emphasis on the methodologies of X-ray, optical and MR imaging also in relation to nuclear imaging techniques. Most recent topics such as Advanced Imaging in Radiotherapy and Hadron Therapy are now well located within the Conference. In addition, specialized topics will be addressed in the Short Courses.

Authors are invited to submit papers describing original and innovative contributions to the field of medical imaging in the topics listed below:

  • Emission tomography instrumentation (PET, SPECT)
  • Other medical imaging technologies (CT, MR, Optical, Photoacustic, etc.)
  • Multi-modality systems
  • High resolution & pre-clinical imaging instrumentation, techniques and systems
  • Intra-operative probes & portable imaging systems
  • New detector materials/technologies for medical imaging
  • Image reconstruction methods
  • Data corrections and quantitative imaging techniques
  • Simulation and modeling of medical imaging systems
  • Data acquisition and signal processing
  • Image processing and parametric imaging
  • Imaging in radiotherapy
  • Hadron therapy
