2010

The 3rd Image Guided Therapy Workshop was successfully held on March 8-9, 2010, in Arlington, VA.

Proceedings of the Workshop are available for download (in pdf format) here.

Sponsored by the National Center for Image-Guided Therapy (NCIGT) and the National Institute of Health (NIH), this workshop will be focused on Multimodal Imaging in the Operating Room. The goal is to learn about state of the art and future trends in operating suites that use more than one imaging modality, and serve more than one clinical specialty.

The overall goal of this workshop series is to asses the current needs and opportunities in the field of image-guided interventions and NCIGT’s role as a national center in relation to the greater IGT community. Similar to the first two workshops in this series, we plan to hold a single track of talks, along with breakout sessions on topics that are of common interest to researchers in the NIH funded IGT community, as well as a poster session. We expect attendance by the members of the academia, industry, and federal agencies interested in the field of image-guided interventions.

The chairs of this workshop are Dr. Ferenc Jolesz of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and Dr. Keyvan Farahani of the National Cancer Institute.

NCIGT is a national resource center in image-guided therapy that is funded jointly by three NIH institutes: NCRR, NCI, and NIBIB.

Funding for this conference was made possible (in part) by Grant# 1 R13 CA 139764-01 from the National Cancer Institute. The views expressed in written conference materials or publications and by speakers and moderators do not necessarily reflect the official policies of the Department of Health and Human Services; nor does mention by trade names, commercial practices, or organizations imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.

Summary

The Third annual IGT workshop was held March 8th and 9th, 2010, in Arlington VA at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Washington National Airport.The topic was Advanced Imaging Technology in the Operating Room. The workshop recorded 104 attendees.These attendees came from 32 institutions, 12 companies and the NIH. Participants traveled from 4 countries, Canada, France, Netherlands and Scotland, and from 17 states within the US.

This program for the workshop included 24 oral presentations, two break-out sessions and 43 posters presentations. The oral presentations where from international thought leading clinicians, researchers, and scientist on topics in Neurosurgery, Radiation Therapy, Focused Ultrasound Therapy, Prostate Cancer Intervention, CT and Cone-Beam CT Imaging, Medical Robotics, and Ultrasound-Guided Drug Delivery. The breakout sessions covered hands-on use of Registration Algorithms and Software, and MRgFUS Therapy.The posters were presented in 6 categories, selected from submitted abstracts.The 6 categories were:Cardiac, Abdomen, Prostate, Brain and Spine, Breast, and General IGT. At the conclusion of this workshop, we compiled a collection of PowerPoint presentations from the speakers suitable for public dissemination and have provided these on our website for this workshop.
