Andinet Enquobahrie, Stephen Aylward, and Wes Turner will attend the SPIE Medical Imaging 2013 confernce in Lake Buena Vista, FL.
Andinet is presenting two papers: ‘Patient-specific port placement for laparoscopic surgery using atlas-based registration’ and ‘Accelerating ultrasound image analysis research through publicly available databases.’ Abstracts and full author lists for these papers are documented on our blog.
Andinet is also participating in the IGSTK workshop: The Image-Guided Surgery Toolkit (IGSTK) a Resource for Researchers, Entrepreneurs, and Educators.
Stephen is co-charing the Computer-Aided Diagnosis conference, and chairing the Live Demonstration workshop.
All three Kitwareans are participating in ‘Dessert with the Experts,’ a student networking event.
Wes will give a presentation, ‘The Segmentation Problem: Open Source Platforms for Segmentation and Quantification Research,’ as part of the Live Demonstrations Workshop. In this demonstration, we will present several applications that are freely available and which are built upon open-source resources. These applications provide tools for managing, maintaining and sharing data aggregations; tools for segmentation of anatomy; tools for lesion sizing; and tools for image quality evaluations. More importantly however, these tools provide a basis for continued development of cutting edge applications within a personalized environment. In this demo, we show the tools working in a loose association of applications, but the liberal open source licensing allows for the code to be used freely. We will present Midas, Nirview, the Lesion Sizing Toolkit (LSTK), and ParaView web.
