About these proceedings


This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the First International Workshop on Simulation and Synthesis in Medical Imaging, held in conjunction with MICCAI 2016, in Athens, Greece, in October 2016.

The 17 revised full papers presented together in this book were carefully reviewed and selected from 21 submissions.

The contributions span the following broad categories: fundamental methods for image-based biophysical modeling and image synthesis; biophysical and data-driven models of disease progression or organ development; biophysical and data-driven models of organ motion and deformation; biophysical and data-driven models of image formation and acquisition; segmentation/registration across or within modalities to aid the learning of model parameters; cross modality (PET/MR, PET/CT, CT/MR, etc.) image synthesis; simulation and synthesis from large-scale image databases; automated techniques for quality assessment of simulations and synthetic images; as well as several applications of image synthesis and simulation in medical imaging such as image registration and segmentation; image denoising and information fusion; image reconstruction from sparse data or sparse views; and real-time simulation of biophysical properties. The papers were divided into two general topics named “simulation based approaches for medical imaging” and “synthesis and its applications in computational medical imaging”.
