3D Interactive Visualization of DICOM Images for Radiology Applications

The 3D Interactive Visualization of DICOM Images for Radiology Applications course will be offered by the National Alliance for Medical Image Computing (NA-MIC) in conjunction with the Neuroimage Analysis Center (NAC) and Harvard Catalyst at the 97th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA 2011). As part of the outreach missions of these NIH funded National Centers, we have developed an offering of freely available, multi-platforms open source software to enable medical image analysis research. The course along with the tutorial 3D Visualization datasets aim to introduce translational clinical scientists to the basics of viewing and interacting in 3D with DICOM volumes and anatomical models using the 3DSlicer software.

Quantitative Medical Imaging for Clinical Research and Practice

Technological breakthroughs in medical imaging hardware and the emergence of increasingly sophisticated image processing software tools permit the visualization and display of complex anatomical structures with increasing sensitivity and specificity. This workshop will begin with an introductory presentation of state-of-the-art, clinical examples of quantitative imaging biomarkers for diagnosis and clinical trial outcome measures. Cases from multiple imaging modalities and from multiple organ systems will be highlighted to illustrate the depth and breath of this field. Participants will then be led through a series of tutorials on the basics of viewing and processing DICOM volumes in 3D using 3D SLICER (www.SLICER.org). Specific hands-on demonstrations will focus on basic use of 3D Slicer software, quantitative measurements from PET/CT studies, and volumetric analysis of meningioma. The course is offered in collaboration with the Harvard Catalyst Clinical Translational Science Award (CTSA) Imaging Program and the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research.

Lifecycle of an Imaging Biomarker: From Validation to Dissemination

The Lifecycle of an Imaging Biomarker: From Validation to Dissemination course is offered by the Harvard Catalyst Clinical Translational Science Award (CTSA) Imaging Program in collaboration with the UT Southwestern CTSA Program

Learning Objectives

  • to present current directions of quantitative imaging as a biomarker in clinical trials.
  • to review the steps involved in the integration of an imaging biomarker into a multi-center clinical trial (protocol development, scanner qualification, standardization of image acquisition, data management, quality assurance, central review and analysis, validation, dissemination)
  • to discuss examples of quantitative imaging best practice in PET/CT, MRI and pediatric imaging.
