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.
