    Call for Papers

    Soft-Tissue Modeling

    Part of SPIE's International Symposium on BiOs '98 International
    Biomedical Optics Symposium

    24-30 January 1998

    San Jose Convention Center

    San Jose, California

    Conference Chair: Jeffrey C. Lotz, UCSF

    Program Committee: Robert L. Galloway, Vanderbilt University

    Sharmial Majumdar, UCSF

    Robert L. Sah, UCSD

    TimesThe ability to
    accurately delineate soft tissues within 3D medical images has many
    applications in both clinical and laboratory settings. The purpose of
    this symposium is to provide a forum to discuss current methods used to
    identify and track soft tissues. General topics of interest include,
    but are not limited to, the following areas:

    * methods for developing 3D models from image datasets

    * delineating soft tissues within images

    * tracking soft tissue motion

    * non-invasive determination of tissue strain

    * real-time imaging during surgery

    * computer simulated surgery

    * image registration

    * soft tissue model validation

    * functional/clinical assessment from dynamic soft tissue images

    * impact of image resolution in the assessment of tissue architecture

    * interfacing numerical simulations of tissue behavior with image

    Abstract Due Date: 30 June 1997

    Camera-Ready Abstract Due Date: 24 November 1997

    Manuscript Due Date: 29 December 1997
