Boonn, The Univ. of Pennsylvania Health System (USA); Thomas M. Deserno, RWTH Aachen (Germany); Steven C. Horii, The Univ. of Pennsylvania Health System (USA); Heinz U. Lemke, Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (Germany); Brent J. Liu, The Univ. of Southern California (USA); Eliot L. Siegel, Univ. of Maryland Medical Ctr. (USA); Jianguo Zhang, Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics (China) Abstract Due Date: 12 August 2013 All submissions must include: a 100-word abstract for early release, a 250-word abstract, and a one to four page supplemental file (see Submission Guidelines) Rapid developments implementation of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and related imaging and healthcare information management systems. The continued emphasis on system integration, workflow and globalization of information management has led to a need for more sophisticated imaging informatics techniques. In addition, the role of imaging informatics is bridg- ing gaps between the diagnostic and therapeutic realms. A new generation of PACS that accommo- dates other imaging-rich clinical specialties beyond radiology is a new focus this year. The conference will include, but is not necessarily limited to, the following general session topics: Advanced PACS-Based Radiology Workflow and Image Sharing With the advent of thin-slice volumetric imaging, the need for research in more efficient methods to analyze and navigate through large volumes of crucial clinical data becomes more apparent. Clinical experiences, workflow issues, systems performance, multimodality image display and navigation, new intelligent display technologies as well as sharing of images within a regional area will be discussed in this session. PACS: Clinical Applications Beyond Radiology Images are used in multiple clinical specialties in addition to radiology. This new topic covers information management in the digital operating room as well as imaging in other clinical specialties such as pathology, dermatology and cardiology, to name a few. Suggested topics include but are not limited to: surgical workflow, digital operating room ergonomics, therapy imaging and model manage- ment systems, PACS, DICOM and IHE in surgery and other imaging-rich specialties, management and assessment of OR systems integration and architecture of ORs and imaging suites. New Generation of PACS PACS is often designed for image storage and trans- fer within radiology or a hospital. With its extended utilization in different clinical areas and research such as bioimaging and bioinformatics, a new generation of dedicated PACS is worth resesarching that takes storage for research data and veterinary images for small animals into consideration. Also images from PACS are often being integrated with electronic health records. New and innovative con- cepts and technologies of PACS for such purposes will be discussed in this session. Imaging and Information Exchange with Mobile Devices This session includes the application of cloud com- puting technology in imaging informatics related to healthcare and the use of mobile devices in radiol- ogy. Suggested topics include distributed image processing, design, implementation, and challenges in cloud storage architecture as well as mobile ap- plication development, security and networking challenges, mobile display performance, and imag- ing workflow performance utilizing mobile devices. Information Management, Systems Integration and Standards Integration of radiology-based imaging with the electronic medical record and multimedia informa- tion from other specialties can positively impact the diagnostic and treatment process but must meet demands for enterprise-wide access and distribu- tion of image-intensive data. In addition, enterprise- level PACS design and implementation, extending to all clinical areas and patient care settings, can be achieved through the utilization of standards such as DICOM and HL-7 along with a number of IHE initiatives. This section will also cover topics includ- ing fault tolerance, data security and data integrity. Research developed utilizing DICOM-SR and other imaging informatics standards (eg, XML, HTML, XDS, etc) will also be covered within this session. Quantitative Analysis, Data Mining and Image- based Patient-Specific Data Modeling Large collections of reference images with reliable ground truth meta-information are required for comprehensive evaluation of image processing algorithms as well as for generation of reference models. Novel research aims at building patient- specific models, where individual morphology or function is integrated into the model. Although such data collections are used already in contests and applications, research is required to automatically generate and maintain such collections from PACS. Research in database development, database ag- gregation and knowledge base development will be covered along with data mining tools, such as content-based image retrieval (CBIR) methodolo- gies and the development of other tools to mine data. Medical imaging search related topics includ- ing web-, local-, and image-based search engines, indexing, ranking algorithms and NLP integration will be included. Imaging Informatics for Diagnostic and Therapeutic Applications DICOM provides a data-rich standard for image data that can be used for various diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabiliation applications. DICOM integration within radiation oncology, optical imaging and pa- thology in addition to research advancement in the utilization of DICOM-RT objects will be included in SPIE Medical Imaging 2014
  • 13. +1 360 676 3290 • help@spie.org • twitter (#SPIEMI) 11 Call for Papers this session. Topics relating to research work per- formed based on DICOM WG26 are encouraged as well. Image-intensive diagnostic and therapeutic applications (e.g., surgery, radiation therapy, che- motherapy, and rehabilitation) will be discussed in this session. Imaging Informatics for Medical and Biomedical Translational Research This session will discuss the extension of imaging informatics to translational research. Research advancements toward personalized medicine will be investigated from genomic-related imaging in- formatics to small animal imaging to functional and/ or whole body imaging and any imaging informatics tools developed to link various fields of research. Managing Imaging Biomarkers and Image- Based Surrogates in Clinical Trials Imaging has become a key issue in controlled clinical trials. Endpoints of studies are defined on quantitative measurements extracted from images. However, PACS and electronic data capture (EDC) systems still appear disconnected, in particular providing insufficient support of multi-center trials. Based on existing standards for communication, ap- plied research is required to implement transparent interconnection for data and information exchange between such systems, which must be conformant with data privacy and security requirements. Quality and Patient Safety Issues in Imaging Informatics Research on business intelligence and applica- tions for quality and patient safety within imaging informatics, including radiation dose monitoring and tracking, productivity and efficiency, and other performance metrics and integration of CAD and PACS, will be discussed in this session.

Yaffe, Sunnybrook Research Institute (Canada); Bulent Yener, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (USA) This conference will address digital pathology, from acquisition of pathology data to its management, analysis, and interpretation by observers. The use of digital pathology data, by both the human and computer, is growing in importance with the recent advent of whole slide scanners and novel instru- mentation for multispectral, multiparametric tissue imaging. There is potential for digital pathology to improve diagnosis and grading of cancer and other pathology tasks, but there are still limitations and challenges that must be addressed before it can be incorporated in the clinical workflow. Although there has been great progress in the development and application of digital pathology over recent years, there are a number of significant computational challenges specific to pathology imaging that distinguish it from its radiological counterpart. There are also unique challenges in terms of how digitized pathology specimens and correlated data are presented to, modified and interpreted by clinicians. We invite submissions that address specific problems related to image acquisition, computer- aided diagnosis, and quantitative image analysis of pathology specimens. We particularly welcome contributions that identify and address challenges encountered in digital pathology imaging as well as in new approaches for image capture and analysis. TOPIC AREAS: For this conference only. During the submission process, you will be asked to choose no more than three topics from the following list to assist in the review process. Image Acquisition • Acquisition, storage, and processing of microscopy images, including histopathology, cytology, immunohistochemistry, and immunofluorescence, • Image mosaicking of nontraditional near-real-time microscopy (OCT, confocal) • Multispectral imaging • Multi-focus volume imaging Quantitative Image Analysis • Computer-aided diagnosis and prognosis • Automated quantification of tissue biomarkers • Grading and classification of pathology images • Segmentation of cellular and tissue structures • Shape analysis and morphology in pathology imaging • Architectural feature extraction and quantification • Multispectral- and volume-based segmentation • Content-based image retrieval, machine-learning, semantic annotation, and visualization of pathology image databases • High-performance computing for whole-slide tissue image analysis Information Fusion • Radiology-pathology registration and fusion • Registration of multiply stained tissue microscopy images • Integration of digital image features with “omics” data for fused diagnostics Others • Color normalization • Remote consultation • Metrics, variability and standardization issues unique to digital pathology • Methodologies for the objective technical assessment of digital pathology systems • Observer performance, human factors and diagnostic interpretation issues • Optical probe tracking and visualization tools • PACS and new DICOM standards for histopathology • Other (please specify) SPIE Medical Imaging 2014 Critical Dates Abstract Due Date: 12 August 2013 Post-Meeting Manuscript Due Date: 20 January 2014 Please Note: Submissions imply the intent of at least one author to register, attend the conference, present the paper as scheduled, and submit a full-length manuscript for publication in the conference proceedings.
