Joint MICCAI-Workshops on
Computing and Visualization for Intravascular Imaging and Computer Assisted Stenting

This workshop brings together two very successful MICCAI-­Workshop series (CVII and STENT) in order to form a common event on technological and scientific research concerned with endovascular procedures. A continuous communication between surgeons/physicians and scientific and industrial researchers is crucial for bringing forward innovative solutions to the clinics: we aim to provide an interchange platform for medical experts and technological researchers concerned with all aspects of endovascular interventions. Through the integration of medical experts into the program committee, we ensure clinical relevance of the entire program, including keynote speeches and scientific paper presentation. CVII-STENT will be a unique platform for scientific discussion of endovascular stenting and intravascular imaging and is highly complementary to the main MICCAI conference.

The workshop will focus on imaging, treatment and computed assisted technological advances in diagnostic and intraoperative imaging. Such techniques offer increasingly useful information regarding vascular anatomy and function and are poised to have dramatic impact on the diagnosis, analysis, modeling, and treatment of vascular diseases. Computational vision techniques designed to analyze images for modeling, simulating, and visualizing anatomy and medical devices such as stents as well as the assessment of interventional procedures are therefore playing an important role and are currently receiving significant interest.
