Celebrating and Supporting the Medical Imaging Community

  2. 2. INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MEDICAL IMAGE COMPUTING & COMPUTER ASSISTED INTERVENTION (MICCAI) The 21st MICCAI annual conference was held in Granada from September 16th to 20th and brought together leading biomedical scientists, engineers, and clinicians from a wide range of disciplines.
  3. 3. MICCAI: BY THE NUMBERS 1,400+ Registered Delegates: 33% Increase over 2017 1600+ Attendees over the 2-day Satellite Events 1000+ Papers Submitted 373 Accepted Papers: 70% Feature AI 79 Posters 40 Workshops 14 Tutorials 12 Challenges 4 Keynote Speakers
  4. 4. Now in its 21st year, MICCAI is the preeminent conference on medical imaging research, bringing together a wide range of experts from academia to industry and healthcare organizations. NVIDIA was a dedicated and active participant at MICCAI with hosted workshops, engaging talks, and a number of accepted papers and posters. MICCAI 2018 LEARN MORE ABOUT MICCAI Source:
  5. 5. CELEBRATING RESEARCH MICCAI 2018 boasted a robust scientific program. With over 1,000 papers submitted, the 373 accepted papers represented the best of the best. NVIDIA had a dozen accepted papers, and 6 poster presentations. Among the research presented, the team used an AI technique called generative adversarial networks (GANs) to generate synthetic images which can be used to train AI-based medical imaging systems.

  7. 7. SPONSORED PAPERS AND CHALLENGES At this year’s MICCAI Conference, NVIDIA sponsored several papers and challenge, including: 1st Workshop on PRedictive Intelligence in MEdicine (PRIME-MICCAI) Statistical Atlases and Computational Modelling of the Heart Workshop (STATCOM) Deep Learning in Medical Image Analysis (DLMIA) Multi-shell Diffusion MRI Harmonisation Challenge (MUSHAC) Medical Segmentation Decathlon (MSD) Source: ttps:// LEARN MORE
  8. 8. PRIME-MICCAI CHALLENGE WINNER "Generation of Amyloid PET Images via Conditional Adversarial Training for Predicting Progression to Alzheimer’s Disease” Yu Yan, Hoileong Lee, Edward Somer, Vicente Grau Their paper highlights an application of conditional generative adversarial networks to the generation of florbetapir PET images from corresponding MRI images.

  11. 11. BRATS CHALLENGE WINNER BraTS (Multimodal Brain Tumor Segmentation) has always been focused on the evaluation of state-of-the-art methods for the segmentation of brain tumors in multimodal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. This year, NVIDIA’s own Andriy Myronenko, Lead Scientist of Brain Segmentation, won first place in the challenge from 390 participants. Source: LEARN MORE
  12. 12. THE YOUNG SCIENTIST IMPACT AWARD The MICCAI Young Scientist Impact Award recognizes those who have had a significant impact in their field so early in their career. This year, NVIDIA’s Dr. Holger Roth won the Young Scientist Impact Award for pioneering deep learning in medical imaging. VIEW RECENT WORK Source:
