Third NCIGT and NIH Image Guided Therapy Workshop

March 8-9, 2010
Crowne Plaza Hotel Washington National Airport
1480 South Crystal Drive
Arlington, VA 22202
(703) 416-1600

Sponsored by the National Center for Image-Guided Therapy (NCIGT) and the National Institute of Health (NIH), this workshop will be focused on Multimodal Imaging in the Operating Room. The goal is to learn about state of the art and future trends in operating suites that use more than one imaging modality, and serve more than one clinical specialty.

The overall goal of this workshop series is to asses the current needs and opportunities in the field of image-guided interventions and NCIGT’s role as a national center in relation to the greater IGT community. Similar to the first two workshops in this series, we plan to hold a single track of talks, along with breakout sessions on topics that are of common interest to researchers in the NIH funded IGT community, as well as a poster session. We expect attendance by the members of the academia, industry, and federal agencies interested in the field of image-guided interventions.

The chairs of this workshop are Dr. Ferenc Jolesz of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and Dr. Keyvan Farahani of the National Cancer Institute.

NCIGT is a national resource center in image-guided therapy that is funded jointly by three NIH institutes: NCRR, NCI, and NIBIB.
