Munich, Germany | October 5-9, 2015
Annually the MICCAI Conference series attracts world leading scientists, engineers and clinicians from a wide range of disciplines associated with medical imaging and computer assisted surgery and is rotated among the North American, European and Asian continents. It offers several days of oral presentations and poster sessions, surrounded by workshops, tutorials and challenges just before and after the conference. The conference is a good opportunity for the biomedical engineering community to promote and foster the exchange and dissemination of advanced knowledge, expertise and experience in the field produced by leading institutions and outstanding scientists, physicians and educators around the world.
For the first time the MICCAI event was held in Munich, Germany, from October 5 to 8, 2015 and had been organized by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) with support of the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuernberg (FAU). In the oral session of October 6, 2015 FRAMOS presented together with the TUM and the Johns Hopkins University its paper on “Cooperative Robotic Gamma Imaging: Enhancing US-guided Needle Biopsy”, given a 15 minute time slot with time for questions at the end of the speech. Associated with it a poster stayed up throughout the days of the main conference and enabled FRAMOS to present their vision system hardware and software and its purpose and usage within the EU Horizon 2020 – research and innovation framework programs BOREALIS and SYMBIONICA.
