Dear Biomch-L readers,

Between Rosa Angulo's body composition query (29 Nov) and Mike Whittle's
reply (7 Dec), I received the programme for the 8th Annual Congress of
the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology
(ESMRMB). The conference takes place in Zuerich/Switzerland from 18
until 21 April, 1991, with a one-day Satellite Meeting "Quantitative
Aspects of Medical Imaging", sponsored by the Swiss National Science
Foundation.

I have just received a letter from the program chairman, Prof. Peter
Niederer at the Institute for Biomedical Technology and Medical Infor-
matics, University & Federal Institute of Technology Zuerich, Mousson-
strasse 18, CH-8044 ZUERICH, Switzerland (Tel. +41.1.256-4568/5325,
FAX +41.1.261-5187) that quantitative determination of masses (and
inertial moments) of body segment presupposes the nontrivial problem
of 3-D segmentation; the latter would certainly fall within the scope
of the meeting insofar it is really quantitative and not mere estimation
by eye.

Any readers active in this area are welcome to get in touch with Prof.
Niederer. For general congress information, you may contact:

The final program of the Satellite meeting will be determined in January
or February; at this time, no decision has been made whether also other
imaging methods (Ultrasound, PET, CT) will be included.

With kind regards -- Herman J. Woltring
