Image Analysis for the Developing Brain

Thursday, September 24, 2009

Organized in conjunction with MICCAI 09, London, UK

**** Deadline for submission : June 29th ****


Understanding how the normal structural and functional patterns of the 
human brain are formed is a critical field of research covering many 
areas from basic neuroscience to clinical neuroradiology. Recent 
advances in clinical imaging techniques have begun to allow us to study 
very early brain growth in vivo and in utero. These new types of image 
data of developing tissues pose new challenges to image analysis 
methodology, and motivate the development of new algorithms and 
computational techniques which can be of use in a wider range of medical 
imaging problems. This workshop will aim to explore work being carried 
out in this new emerging field. It will gather together research on both 
imaging and image analysis techniques related to studying the growth of 
the brain from early clinical fetal imaging using ultrasound and MRI, to 
imaging studies of neonates, children and adolescents. It will include 
research focused toward clinical imaging as well as basic neuroscience 
studies.  We want to cover the specific challenges to image analysis in 
the changing brain, and aim to include work from imaging and motion 
correction, through image analysis of developing tissues, to statistical 
techniques for spatio-temporal data. We invite the submission of papers 
that both explore new image analysis methodology and that examine the 
adaptation and validation of current techniques to the problem of 
studying brain growth.
