CARS 2002 Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery
16th International Congress and Exhibition
June 26-29, 2002
Palais des Congrès, Paris, France

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 2002 (ISCAS, CMI, CAD, CVI, and CAR)
provides a cooperative framework for advancing the development and
application of modern computer assisted technologies in healthcare.

Topics for CARS 2002 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
* Telemedicine
* Expert Systems and Computer Assisted Education
* Economic, Social and Management Issues
* Image Management and Communication (IMAC) in Pathology,
Dermatology, Ophtamology, Internal Medicine, etc.
* Inter- and Intrahospital IMAC
* IMAC Health Care Infrastructures for In-home Care
* E-health and Multimedia EPR
