The NIST Workshop on Standards for the Advancement of Medical Imaging is intended to provide a forum for a broad cross-section of the optical medical imaging community. Participation from academic, clinical, and industrial interests will help in developing a roadmap to expedite progress towards a common goal.
August 26-27, 2014
8:30am to 5:00pm
AML Building 215, Room C103-C106
NIST Gaithersburg, Maryland
Optical medical imaging promises to change the way medicine is practiced by providing rapid, low-cost, non-invasive diagnostics and treatment monitoring. This field has made steady progress over the last two decades at the research bench and is now beginning to benefit patients.The development of optical medical devices depends on the use of standards for verification and validation.In many cases existing standards are insufficient for the needs of newly developed medical imaging devices. This workshop will highlight recent advances in optical medical imaging. A special focus on the need for standards and proposed solutions to those needs will be illustrated with case studies. This workshop is intended to provide a forum for a broad cross-section of the optical medical imaging community. Participation from academic, clinical, and industrial interests will help in developing a roadmap to expedite progress towards a common goal.
