Dear Colleague,

In recent years, extensive research has been performed to develop more
and more efficient and powerful medical imaging systems. Such systems
are crucial for medical specialists, allowing a deeper analysis and to
understand what is going inside the human body, and therefore they
play an essential role for adequate medical diagnosis and treatments.
To accomplish efficient and powerful medical imaging systems, many
research works have being done in many domains, like the ones related
with medical image devices, signal processing, image processing and
analysis, biomechanical simulation and data visualization.
The main goal of the Workshop "Medical Imaging Systems" is to bring
together researchers involved in the related domains, in order to set
the major lines of development for the near future.
Therefore, the proposed Workshop will consist of researchers
representing various fields related to Medical Devices, Signal
Processing, Computational Vision, Computer Graphics, Computational
Mechanics, Scientific Visualization, Mathematics and Medical Imaging.
The Workshop endeavours to contribute to obtain better solutions for
more efficient and powerful medical imaging systems, and attempts to
establish a bridge between clinicians and researchers from these
diverse fields.
The proposed Workshop will cover topics related with medical imaging
systems, such as: image acquisition, signal processing, image
processing and analysis, modelling and simulation, computer aided
diagnosis, surgery, therapy, and treatment, computational bioimaging
and visualization, software development, virtual reality and
telemedicine systems and their applications.
Due to your research activities in the field, we would like to invite
you to submit a contributed paper. Your contribution is mostly
welcomed and we would be honoured if you could participate in
EUROMEDIA 2008.
