CTSA at RSNA

Introduction

The Quantitative Medical Imaging for Clinical Research and Practice course is offered by the Clinical Translational Science Award (CTSA) Consortium at the 96th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA 2010).

As part of the outreach missions of these cooperating institutions, we will offer a presentation and hands-on demonstration using freely available, multi-platforms open source software to enable medical image analysis research. The course along with the tutorial and datasets aim to introduce translational clinical scientists to the capabilities of the 3D Slicer software.


Logistics

  • Date: Tuesday, November 30 2010
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Location: S401CD, McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois
  • Course: IA31

Learning Objectives

  • Enhance interpretation of medical images through the use of 3D visualization,
  • Gain experience with interactive, quantitative assessment of complex anatomical structures,
  • Present current directions of quantitative imaging as a biomarker in clinical trials.

Abstract

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.
