Innovation to Implementation in Imaging: The Changing Face of Biomedical Imaging

In October 2016, over 300 scientists, clinicians, engineers, and programmers from academia, medicine, and tech industry came together at the inaugural i2i Workshop to explore how latest technical trends will transform workflow, hardware, software, and image interpretation in MR and PET. See the workshop program and recorded presentations below. Sign up for updates on the next i2i Workshop, where we will continue to explore what's next for biomedical imaging.
