Reconstruction and Analysis of Moving Body Organs (RAMBO) 2018

The 3rd international workshop on Reconstruction and Analysis of Moving Body Organs will be held in conjunction with the 21th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention 2018 in Granada, Spain on 16 September 2018.

This workshop targets researchers for whom the effects of motion are critical in image analysis or visualisation. By inviting contributions across all application areas we aim to bring together ideas from different fields without being confined to a particular methodology. In particular, the move from model-based to learning-based methods of modelling over recent years has resulted in increased transferability of techniques between domains. RAMBO provides a forum for the dissemination and discussion of novel developments related to dealing with, and taking advantage of, motion in medical imaging.

Workshop date: 16 September 2018 pm

Location: Granada, Spain

Keynote talks

Dr Leo Grady: Senior Vice President of Engineering at HeartFlow

Dr. Grady has over 12 years of experience in creating advanced medical imaging and machine learning-based software. Prior to joining HeartFlow, he worked at Siemens in the Corporate Research division focused on developing software for advanced imaging analytics and computer vision. In this role he created and led the development of innovative software products to extract complex information from a wide variety of medical imaging modalities, with a particular focus on cardiovascular and oncology applications. He is internationally recognized for his work on advanced algorithms for medical imaging, computer vision and machine learning. Dr. Grady has published two books, over 100 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers and has over 300 issued or pending patents worldwide.
He received a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of Vermont and a Ph.D. in Cognitive and Neural Systems from Boston University.

Specialties: Executive R&D leadership, product/project management, software engineering, machine learning, computer vision, medical imaging, medical software development and intellectual property.

Dr. Elisenda Eixarch: Consultant and Associate Professor, Fetal and Perinatal Medicine Research Group, Hospital ClĂ­nic de Barcelona

Advanced imaging and image analysis in fetal medicine

The talk will be focused on the impact of the application of advanced imaging and image analysis in fetal medicine. In the last decades, fetal medicine has evolved from exclusively using ultrasound to study fetal structures to the application of other imaging modalities. Diffusion and functional MRI, brain sulcation development, and brain spectroscopy among others have been used to demonstrate the effects of prenatal conditions on fetal brain development, improving knowledge in the origin of neurodevelopmental disorders and offering the opportunity to develop imaging biomarkers of altered neurodevelopment.

We invite submissions on any aspect of medical imaging where motion plays a role in the image formation or analysis. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Cardiac, respiratory, fetal, colon, fMRI, interventional applications
  • Motion modelling (including methods to learn motion)
  • Time series analysis
  • Image registration
  • Image segmentation / classification
  • Real-time applications
  • Machine learning methods
  • Image reconstruction
  • Image enhancement (e.g. super-resolution, denoising)
  • Compressed sensing / accelerated imaging
