Oral presentation with computer screen projection, 12 minutes for talk, 3 minutes for discussion


The objective of this workshop is discuss state-of-art in medical image processing and computer assisted intervention of prostate, In this half-day workshop, we will share our recent advances and identify translational technologies useful in clinical application of prostate diagnosis and threpy. We will also identify possible synergies among the participants and potential future collaboration.
