CARS 2001 Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery
15th International Congress and Exhibition
June 27-30, 2001
ICC Berlin, Germany

CARS is the premier annual international meeting of experts on new
developments in computer assisted medical tools and applications. This
conference concentrates on advances in medical imaging, health care
networking, surgical robotics and instrumentation, and related imaging
based technologies. CARS now includes the electronic medical record (EMR)
and access management, with collaboration between all healthcare parties,
including the patient.

Progress in specific computer assisted techniques (e.g. digital imaging,
computer aided diagnosis, image guided surgery, MEMS, etc.) combined with
computer assisted integration tools (e.g. PACS, EMR, middleware, Internet,
telemedicine, etc.) is reported at CARS. Physicians describe the use of PACS
and telemedicine systems as enabling infrastructures for improving quality
of and access to healthcare. Tools based on CAD and CAS are introduced by
scientists and engineers at CARS.

To ensure that these tools benefit the patient, collaboration between
various disciplines, specifically radiology, surgery, engineering,
informatics and healthcare management is a critical factor. The federation
of societies and congresses of CARS 2001 (ISCAS, EuroPACS, CMI, CAD, CVI,
SMIT and CAR) provides the necessary cooperative framework for advancing the
development and application of modern computer assisted technologies in

Topics for CARS 2001 include:

Medical Imaging including CT, MR, US, SPECT, PET, DR, Molecular
Imaging, and Virtual Endoscopy
Image Processing and Display
Medical Workstations
Image Guided Surgery and Radiation Therapy
