Abstract

The Biomedical Imaging Research Opportunities Workshops (BIROW) held over the past 4 years examined the leading edge of research opportunities in biomedical imaging, to recommend strategies to advance imaging research and thereby improve imaging applications in preventive medicine, medical diagnosis and treatment. Funded through grants from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) and the Whitaker Foundation, and held each spring in Bethesda MD, the BIROW workshops were sponsored by 5 organizations: the American Association of Physicists in Medicine, Radiological Society of North America, Biomedical Engineering Society, Academy for Radiology Research, and the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineers. This session introduces the purpose and accomplishments of BIROW and plans for its future, followed by discussions by several leading researchers on topics of substantial current interest in biomedical imaging research: Image‐Guided Therapy (Drs. Bourland, Pelizzari, Ling and Jaffray); Small Animal Imaging Systems (Drs. Fullerton, Eckelman and Patt); Medical Imaging Technology: From Concept to Clinic (Drs. Hendee, Mulvaney, Mackie and Fenster); and Informatics and Computerized Image Analysis (Drs. Nagy, McNitt‐Gray and Chan). Participants in this session will gain insight into the types of research challenges and opportunities present in BIROW workshops through the presentation of these examples. 1:30 – 1:50 Introduction Session: Purpose of BIROW 1:50 – 3:20 Image‐Guided Therapy Small Animal Imaging Systems 4:00 – 5:30 Medical Imaging Technology: From Concept to Clinic Informatics and Computerized Image Analysis.
