Medical Imaging

3rd January - 7th January, 2011

Department of Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering
Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur - 721302


Introduction

Medical imaging is one of the biggest blessings of science and technology to serve the humanity. The remarkable developments in the field of medical imaging is intensified by advancement of image processing, pattern recognition and machine intelligence techniques and they have strengthened the recent advancement of medical diagnostics. The key benefit of medical imaging is that it makes diagnosis possible in a non-invasive way. Medical imaging can be used for early detection, where the diseases could be detected at an early stage and thereby the chance of revival is increased for the patients and that comes with less pain and expenditure. Over the years people from various disciplines including doctors, engineers and scientists have strengthened this niche area of medical imaging. Though its an exciting area of research, the role of south-eastern Asian countries and African nations are very insignificant in this domain. However, to make the affordable solution available and acceptable to the masses the active participation of the local researchers is necessary in this region. One of the primary challenges of this domain is that it needs a multi-disciplinary approach. This workshop brings the key personalities/participants in this field to share with you their recent advances and experiences. It provides you the recent trend of industry needs and research and creates an opportunity to develop the local as well as global network. Department of Electronics & Electrical Communication Engineering and School of Medical Science & Technology, IIT Kharagpur being actively involved in multidisciplinary research and teaching in medical imaging and instrumentation, image processing and pattern analysis, provides the venue of this workshop.
