2020 - Cancelled

The 11th National Image-Guided Therapy Annual Workshop scheduled for April 16-17, 2020 will not be held at this time, in response to the  public health issue related to the potential spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). 
Registered attendees will be contacted individually and their registration fee will be refunded. We are currently discussing the future plans and hope to host the meeting later this year.
Once our plans are definite we will inform all by emails and on this website.


The 11th National Image Guided Therapy Workshop will be held on Thursday, April 16 – Friday, April 17, 2020 at the Hilton Rockville Hotel, 1750 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD


The overall goal of this workshop series is to foster a discourse in translational research in image-guided therapy in the NIH-funded community, and to communicate the availability of NCIGT as a national resource for tools and technologies in the field. Attendees include NIH funded academic scientists, clinicians, and leaders from industry and federal agencies interested in image-guided interventions.  The workshop is a single track meeting that includes oral and poster presentations of refereed abstracts, invited talks, and individual interactions with NIH Programs Staff.
