VISE takes SPIE Medical Imaging 2018 by storm
Research is a huge component of involvement with Vanderbilt Institute for Surgery and Engineering (VISE) but affiliation also comes with sharing that research and meeting like-minded scientists to make significant impacts in healthcare.
Each year VISE participates in the SPIE Medical Imaging meeting, which is internationally recognized as the premier forum for relating state-of-the-art research and development in medical imaging. Like their peers elsewhere, VISE affiliates are encouraged to aim for the global scientific stage and submit their most innovative projects for consideration at prestigious conferences.
This year, VISE was at SPIE Medical Imaging 2018 in force. Six labs took part and presentations included research faculty, post doctoral scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates. The contingent that traveled to Houston, Texas, for the six-day conference included more than 20 students.
VISE labs in attendance include:
Biomedical Elasticity and Acoustical Measurement (BEAM) Lab, under the direction of Brett Byram, PhD, assistant professor of biomedical engineering;
Biomedical Image Analysis for Image Guided Interventions (BAGL) Lab, under the direction of Jack Noble, PhD, assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer science;
Biomedical Modeling Lab (BML), under the direction of Harvie Branscomb Professor, Michael I. Miga, PhD, professor of biomedical engineering;
Medical Engineering and Discovery (MED) Lab, under the direction of Robert Webster, PhD, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering;
Medical-image Analysis and Statistical Interpretation (MASI) Lab, under the direction of Bennett Landman, PhD, associate professor department of electrical engineering; and
Medical Imaging Processing (MIP) Lab, under the direction of Cornelius Vanderbilt Chair in Engineering, Benoit Dawant, PhD, professor of electrical engineering, director, Vanderbilt Institute for Surgery and Engineering.
VISE was founded to encourage collaboration between the School of Engineering and Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and large professional conferences foster collaboration. For nearly a decade, engineering graduate and undergraduate students, post-doctoral scholars, research staff and world-class faculty have worked with renowned VUMC clinicians and surgeons to translate research into tools and processes that improve diagnosis and treatment and enhance patient care.
