Several researchers from the Johns Hopkins Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare presented peer reviewed papers at MICCAI 2018, the 21st International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention, held from September 16 – 20 in Granada, Spain.
The annual MICCAI conference attracts world renowned biomedical scientists, engineers, and clinicians from a wide range of disciplines associated with medical imaging and computer assisted intervention. The conference series included three days of oral presentations, poster sessions, and keynote lectures. MICCAI 2018 also included satellite events (workshops, tutorials, and challenges) on the days preceding and following the conference.
Malone researchers presented at both the main conference and at specialized satellite events. Additionally, they contributed to organizing efforts for the conference. Anand Malpani, assistant research scientist in the Malone Center, co-organized a satellite workshop event titled “OR 2.0 Context Aware Operating Theaters.” The workshop included panel discussions and presentations related to the topic of surgical robotic tools and digitally enhanced operating theaters.
