Workshop                                           Sunday 10 Sept 2017


Once again, the two successful MICCAI-Workshop series (CVII and STENT)
on technological and scientific research concerned with endovascular
procedures are united into a single workshop at MICCAI 2017. A
continuous communication between surgeons/physicians, scientific and
industrial researchers is crucial for bringing forward innovative
solutions to the clinics: we aim to provide an interchange platform
for medical experts and technological researchers concerned with all
aspects of endovascular interventions.

The workshop will focus on technological advances in imaging,
treatment, and computer assisted operations for diagnostic and
intraoperative imaging. Such techniques offer increasingly useful
information regarding vascular anatomy and function and are poised to
have dramatic impact on the diagnosis, analysis, modeling, and
treatment of vascular diseases. This year we are pleased to announce
talks by:

• Prof. Guy Cloutier, CHUM Research Centre, Montreal, Canada

• PD Dr.-Ing. Markus Kowarschik , Siemens Healthcare, Munich, Germany

with further speakers to be confirmed.

Submissions (maximum 8 pages in the Springer LNCS style) are welcome
on all topics related to intravascular imaging and computer assisted
stenting. They include but are not limited to:


    Atherosclerotic plaque image analysis and characterization
    Quantification of vascular morphology and function
    Tissue classification of intravascular images
    Computer-aided diagnosis of vascular disease
    Segmentation and anatomic modeling from IVUS, OCT, CTA, X-ray angiography, IVMR, …
    Image-based biomechanical models of vascular anatomy and function
    Registration of intravascular images
    Image processing methods for intravascular contrast agent applications
    Hemodynamic image-based modeling
    Percutaneous imaging/intervention, including IVUS, OCT and IVMR


    Imaging for struts/stent detection, reconstruction, and assessment
    Computer-aided interventions for stenting procedures
    Detection and visualization of fluid dynamic changes induced by stents
    Computer-aided diagnosis of post-deployment diseases (neo-intima growth, stent malposition)
    Planning and navigation of vascular treatments
    Segmentation, registration and anatomic modeling of vascular images
    Image-based biomechanical and hemodynamic models of stents, vascular anatomy, and function
    Analysis and improvement of stent design
    Virtual stenting and virtual deployment
    Monitoring and follow-up for stent implants
