12th International MICCAI Conference Set to Welcome Delegates

London | Posted on September 7th, 2009

MICCAI 2009, the 12th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention, is set to welcome delegates in London from 20th - 24th September 2009. Now in its 12th year, the MICCAI conference attracts world-leading scientists, engineers and clinicians from a wide range of disciplines associated with medical imaging and computer assisted surgery. The venue for MICCAI 2009 will be the main campus of Imperial College London in South Kensington.

The 5-day conference includes a full programme of workshops, tutorials and keynote presentations, and will be supported by an online interactive exhibition. Professor Sir Michael Brady FRS will address the conference on the topic of "Oncological Image Analysis", and Professor Koji Ikuta from Nagoya University in Japan will deliver his keynote presentation on "Nano and Micro Robotics for Future Biomedicine".

In an addition to this year's MICCAI programme, conference organisers have invited two leading figures in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to share with students and research fellows their journey in basic sciences research and how to foster effective collaboration between engineering and clinical medicine. Sir Peter Mansfield FRS, physicist and Nobel Laureate, and Professor Donald Longmore OBE FRCS Ed FRCR, surgeon and inventor, will hold "An Audience with the Pioneers" on Tuesday 22nd September.

The full list of organisations exhibiting at MICCAI 2009 (miccai2009.org) is: Analyze Direct, Artech House, Claron Technology, Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, Hansen Medical, Institution of Engineering and Technology, Intition Ltd, Intuitive Surgical Inc, IXICO Ltd, Maxeler Technologies Ltd, NDI Europe GmbH, NHS National Institute for Health Research, NVIDIA, Qatar Robotic Surgery Centre, Quanser, Robocast, Sensegraphics AB, Springer and Tobii Technology AB.

Members of the media interested in scheduling an interview with Professor Guang-Zhong Yang, MICCAI General Chair and Director of Medical Imaging at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College, can do so by contacting Nicky Denovan at nicky[.]evokedset.com.

About Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Imperial College London
About the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Imperial College London

The Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBE) was founded to create an international centre of excellence in biomedical engineering research. Its state-of-the-art, purpose-built facilities opened in 2006.

Combining the strengths of two world class research schools in engineering and medicine, the IBE draws together scientists, medics and engineers to apply their extensive expertise to create revolutionary progress in medical diagnosis and treatment. Through this interdisciplinary approach, the IBE is delivering a world-leading combined research capability to tackle the major challenges in modern healthcare applying advances in technology to enable people to lead independent and productive lives despite illness, ageing and disability.

The research programme is focused at the intersections between the platform technologies in science and engineering, including systems biology, materials, imaging and nanotechnology, and medical applications, such as bionics, biomechanics and tissue engineering.
