MICCAI 2008 Workshop on
Computational Diffusion MRI
Call for Papers
Over the last decade interest in diffusion MRI has exploded. The technique
provides a unique insight into the microstructure of living tissue and
enables in-vivo connectivity mapping of the brain. Microstructural changes
are often the earliest signs of disease or tissue regeneration.
Tractography and connectivity mapping give fundamental new insights in
neuroscience and neuroanatomy. The variety of clinical applications is
expanding rapidly and includes detection of lesions and damaged tissue,
prognosis of functional impairment and neurosurgical planning.
Computational techniques are key to the continued success and development of
diffusion MRI and to its widespread transfer into the clinic. New
processing methods are essential for addressing issues at each stage of the
diffusion MRI pipeline: acquisition, reconstruction, modelling and model
fitting, image processing, fiber tracking, connectivity mapping,
visualization, group studies and inference. The workshop will give a
snapshot of the current state of the art.
