Medical imaging has continued to have an increasing impact in both
diagnosis and treatment of a variety of illnesses and conditions.
More importantly, however, the field has contributed greatly to the
underlyiong theoretical basis and application of mathematical
techniques in imaging. The special requirements of both research and
clinical medicine have pushed researchers to develop new imaging
modalities, theoretical frameworks, filtering techniques, segmentation
methods, and visualization strategies.

This conference will focus on the application of mathematical and
statistical methods to medical imaging problems. Papers describing new
applications, refinements of existing techniques, new theoretical
models, or application of techniques in new settings are sollicited.

This year's meeting will focus on topics concerning uncertainty in
medical imaging, such as:
* representing variability and abnormality
* uncertainty associated with segmenting structure
* variability in measurement from image data.

In addition, topics may include, but are not limited to:
* geometric/deformable models
* surface fitting/registration
* theoretical models underlying image segmentation
* algorithms for segmentation, mensuration, and diagnosis
* image reconstruction
* optimization
* variational and finite element methods

It is planned that panel discussions will be held at the end of a
number of sessions. Panels will include the chair, the presenters at
the session, and possibly one or two other experts.

SUBMISSIONS must include abstracts of approximately 1200 words. Email
is the preferred (but not exclusive) method of transmission.
Send submissions by email to: abstracts@mom.spie.org
or fax one copy to SPIE at: 206-647-1445
or mail four copies to: SPIE, PO Box 10, Bellingham, WA 98227-0010.

Abstract due date: 27 december 1993, manuscript: 2 May 1994.
The proceedings will be vailable at the conference.
Abstracts should include the following:
* abstract title, -author listing, -correspondence for each author,
* submit to Mathematical Methods in Medical Imaging III (Bookstein),
* presentation (oral or poster), -abstract, -key words, -brief
biography principal author.
Applicants will be notified of acceptance by 19 April 1994.
