Interaction in medical image analysis and visualization

A workshop in conjunction with MICCAI 2007 (, to be held in Brisbane on Friday 2 November.




Although a general ambition is to make medical image analysis and visualization systems as automated as possible, the complexity of the human anatomy in the images frequently makes it impossible to achieve full automation with sufficient quality of the results. In particular, image segmentation often requires some human interaction, and in volume rendering interactive adjustment of transfer functions is common. Since modern medical image data tend to have three or more dimensions, and image display and interaction devices are predominantly 2D, the required interaction poses challenging problems.
