MICCAI-STENT 2012: 1st MICCAI-Workshop on Computer Assisted Stenting
Together with colleagues from other groups, we are organizing a Workshop on Computer Assisted Stenting at MICCAI 2010.
This workshop aims to bring together researchers in the field of endovascular stenting procedures in different anatomical regions. While researchers concerned with cerebral, coronary, carotid, and aortic stenting have mostly published within their corresponding anatomy, the proposed MICCAI-STENT Workshop will provide a platform for scientific discussion on stent-related research across anatomical boundaries and will eventually be the basis for forming a specialized subcommunity within MICCAI. Technological advances in diagnostic and intraoperative imaging 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. In the 1st MICCAI-STENT workshop to be held on October 1, 2012, in Nice, France, all aspects of this topic will be addressed, and to the best of our knowledge STENT is the only workshop dedicated to these particular aspects of stenting procedures, and it is absolutely complementary to the main MICCAI conference.
