Kitware is helping to organize the Advances in Simplifying Medical UltraSound (ASMUS) workshop at the 24th annual international conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention (MICCAI). This workshop will bring together the MICCAI research community to explore the next generation of medical ultrasound methods and systems. We envisage a future for ultrasound that combines advances both in medical computing and computer-assisted intervention for this uniquely operator-driven, real-time modality.
The full day ASMUS workshop will take place on 27th September 2021 and include live practical technology demonstrations, paper presentations, Q&A sessions, and keynote talks. Papers and live demonstration proposals must be submitted by 25th June 2021. Topics of interest include:
- Ultrasound acquisition with robotic (automated) assistance
- Machine learning methods in ultrasound analysis and guidance
- Ultrasound quality and skills assessment
- Augmented and virtual reality enhancements for ultrasound applications
- Ultrasound integration with other devices, e.g. positional and eye tracking
- Ultrasound integration with clinical imaging, e.g. camera videos, CT, MR, fluorescence
- Different modes of ultrasound acquisition, e.g. photoacoustic, Doppler, functional ultrasound, tissue quantification
- Ultrasound applications involving global healthcare, operator training, POCUS, surgical assistance, continuous monitoring, and more.
