2013 ISMRM CardiacStudyGroup CARMA
About the Workshop
The Slicer demo session will be held as part of the Cardiac Study Group meeting at the The International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) Annual Meeting . The goal is to provide participants with an overview of the software available for segmentation and postprocessing of cardiac LGE-MRI, specifically for the study of cardiac tissue in the left atrium. The session will include a brief presentation on the imaging itself, followed by considerations for image processing and a tutorial using the CARMA DBP Slicer Extension modules to segment and process LGE-MRI.
- About Slicer and the National Alliance for Medical Image Computing: Over the past eight years, the National Alliance for Medical Image Computing (NA-MIC), one of the seven National Centers for Biomedical Computing (NCBC), part of the NIH Roadmap for medical research, has focused its efforts on the transfer of the latest advances in biomedical image analysis to the clinical and scientific community, through the development and dissemination of open source tools. As part of the NA-MIC toolkit, the 3D Slicer open-source software has been developed as a technology delivery platform that is both easy to use for clinical researchers, and easy to extend for software developers.
- About CARMA: The mission of the Comprehensive Arrhythmia Research & Management Center is to provide worldwide pioneering leadership in advancing research and clinical treatments for cardiac arrhythmias, particularly atrial fibrillation, a disease that causes both short and long term impairment in the quality of life for millions worldwide. The CARMA Center is advancing research to better understand this disease and develop new medical techniques and interventions that greatly improve the lives of patients.
- About UCAIR: UCAIR, or the Utah Center for Advanced Imaging Research, is the research division of the Department of Radiology at the University of Utah. We are a group of medical physicists, engineers, radiologists, students, associates and fellows all working to design and develop better imaging devices, technology and applications. The Center provides the expertise and the infrastructure of a world-class imaging resource for the campus and the nation. Many of our research projects are collaborative and multidisciplinary because imaging technology is a powerful tool for both medical and biological research.
