This meeting will be held at the Bethesda Hyatt Regency, January 31, 2003 - February 1, 2003. Currently 11 leading societies in medical imaging are participating, sponsoring or participating organizations. Advice and scientific participation are contributed by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) staff. This workshop is intended to identify and explore opportunities for basic science research and engineering development of biomedical imaging as well as related diagnosis and therapy. Featured topics include: a) Example of imaging solutions to a multi-disease biological challenge--imaging of hypoxia; b) Extending imaging methodologies and systems across spatial scales; c) Assessment and validation of imaging methods and technologies; and d) Image-guided therapy. The workshop will include invited speakers on selected topics, focused breakout groups, and discussion with invited government representatives. Among the invited speakers are SC funded researchers Thomas Budinger, M.D., Ph.D., Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Michael Welch, Ph.D., Washington University in St. Louis.
