Biomedical Imaging is evolving to meet new demands in biology and medicine, including the possibility to localize gene expression, to characterize cell behavior in vivo, to map out the functioning brain, or to provide personalized medicine, point-of-care delivery, and minimally invasive procedures. To address these needs, biomedical imaging methodologies are being challenged to extend resolution and contrast, to increasingly include multiple modalities, operate in various clinical and research settings, and focus on a variety of temporal and spatial scales, from molecular to whole-body imaging, from nano to macro.
The meeting will feature preconference tutorials and short courses, followed by a strong scientific program of plenary talks and special sessions as well as oral and poster presentations of peer-reviewed contributed papers.
High-quality papers are solicited containing original contributions to the algorithmic, mathematical and computational aspects of biomedical imaging, from nano- to macroscale. Topics of interest include image formation and reconstruction, computational and statistical image processing and analysis, dynamic imaging, visualization, image quality assessment, and physical, biological and statistical modeling. Papers on all molecular, cellular, anatomical and functional imaging modalities and applications are encouraged. All 4-page accepted papers will be published on the USB symposium proceedings and published on IEEE Xplore afterwards. One page papers (which will only present at the meeting as posters) will be available on-line and will not be published in Xplore.
