SPIE, along with the support of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), will conduct a “Grand Challenge” on quantitative image analysis methods for the diagnostic classification of clinically significant prostate lesions. As part of the 2017 SPIE Medical Imaging Symposium, the PROSTATEx Challenge will provide a unique opportunity for participants to compare their algorithms with those of others from academia, industry, and government in a structured, direct way using the same data sets. To register for the challenge visit http://spiechallenges.cloudapp.net/.
The Computational Precision Medicine (CPM) will be a full-day satellite event held on October 21 in Athens, Greece at MICCAI 2016, composed of short workshops on advances in radio-path-omics and radiomics, and innovative challenges in CT radiomics, classification and nuclei segmentation in digital pathology, and mammographic CAD detection.
The Computational Brain Tumor Cluster of Event (CBTC) 2015 will be held on Oct 9 in Munich, Germany, in conjunction with MICCAI 2015 http://www.miccai2015.org/. It http://www.miccai2015.org/will consist of a morning workshop and afternoon challenges. (see preliminary program here)
As part of the 2015 SPIE Medical Imaging Conference http://spie.org/x12166.xml, SPIE – with the support of American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) – will conduct a “Grand Challenge” on quantitative image analysis methods for the diagnostic classification of malignant and benign lung nodules. The LUNGx Challenge http://spie.org/MI/special-events/Technical-Event will provide a unique opportunity for participants to compare their algorithms to t
The goal of the CT segmentation challenge was to compare the bias (where possible) and repeatability of automatic, semi-automatic and manual segmentations for lung CT studies. Investigators from Columbia, MGH, Moffitt and Stanford identified 52 lung CT nodules and made available the data in DICOM format. Algorithm developers and users were requested to submit at least 4 repetitions of their algorithm for each nodule. A variety of image formats for the segmentation volumes were utilized including
MICCAI 2014 http://miccai2014.org/ will provide an excellent opportunity for a day long cluster of events in brain tumor computation (September 14, 2014). It will be composed of a workshop and radiologic and pathology image processing challenges that discuss and showcase the value of open science in addressing some of the challenges of Big Data in the context of brain cancer.
The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI’s) Cancer Imaging Program in collaboration with the 16th international conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Interventions (MICCAI) 2013 has launched two grand segmentation challenges involving clinically relevant prostate structures and brain tumor components based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. The event will take place at MICCAI 2013 meeting (http://www.miccai2013.org/ http://www.miccai2013.org/) on September 22 in Nagoya,J
The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI's) Cancer Imaging Program in collaboration with the International Society for Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) has launched a grand challenge involving prostate gland magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. The challenge will take place at the ISBI Symposium http://www.biomedicalimaging.org/2013/, April 7-11, 2013 in San Francisco, CA.
