i2i workshop

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

Note: We tweeted the workshop live; See Twitter stream at @i2iworkshop

This October, come to New York to hear thought leaders from academic science, medicine, and tech industry discuss how comprehensive data acquisition and machine learning algorithms will transform workflow, hardware, software, and image interpretation.
Join us to examine key trends and future transformations in MR and PET, with emphasis on technical innovation, interdisciplinary collaboration, and translation into clinical practice.

Note: Thanks to additional funding received by CAI2R, we are waiving i2i registration fees. All sessions as well as lunch and coffee breaks are now on us! However, there are nominal fees for reserving your space for evening events. Space is limited. Register now, below.

Note: The inaugural i2i workshop is dedicated to the late Dr. Graham Wiggins, whose imagination, curiosity, rigor, and mentorship helped define and advance our vision for biomedical imaging. If you would like to join us for Dr. Wiggins’s memorial on October 15, following the i2i workshop, indicate so at registration.

Graham Wiggins, DPhil
