AboutMICCAI Workshop on Mesh Processing in Medical Image Analysis
In conjunction with MICCAI 2013.
Nagoya University, Room IB013
September 26, 2013
ScopeMany strategies for medical image analysis have been built on an image analysis pipeline that starts with acquired image data, performs filtering and processing, constructs geometric models of important surfaces and structures, performs simulation, and finally provides quantitative and visual analysis of the data. Within this pipeline, geometry and shape are commonly represented as a mesh, or a discretization of some domain into simpler computational elements such as quads or triangles (representative of surface pieces) or tetrahedra and hexahedra (representative of volumetric elements). This image-to-mesh (I2M) step converts volumetric images into formats that are more suitable for solving finite-element simulations, analyzing critical structures, and performing boundary surface visualization tasks. Current research in computational geometry, graphics hardware, and computer graphics has produced methods to represent, extract, refine, visualize and analyze both critical surfaces embedded in the 3D volumes, such as interfaces between tissues, as well as volumetric regions, such as organs. The workshop investigates the role meshes have with medical image analysis and is broadly based on three overlapping themes:
- Mesh processing,
- The I2M pipeline,
- Surface analysis and extraction.
ProceedingsPrinted proceedings will be available at the workshop. However, they will not be published by Springer, as originally announced. Proceedings for MeshMed 2012 was published by Springer.
Best paper prizeThe best paper prize for MeshMed 2013 went to Sergio Vera and his coworkers for the paper: Volumetric Anatomical Parameterization and Meshing for Inter-patient Liver Coordinate System Definition. Congratulations!
RegistrationRegistration for the workshop is handled trough the main MICCAI conference.
