Call for Abstracts: 20th International Bone Densitometry Workshop
Advanced Musculoskeletal Biomedical Imaging Workshop: From Technology to Application
Molecular, Cellular, Structural, Functional Imaging
October 13-17, 2014 Hong Kong
Abstract submission deadline: May 31, 2014
The International Bone Densitometry Workshop (IBDW) educational mission is to update the metabolic bone field in the cutting-edge advances in the radiological assessments of skeletal micro architecture and bone quality. The topics of discussion and presentation by true experts in this field include, for example, presenting the advancements in micro-MRI, high resolution central and peripheral QCT, finite element analysis, measurements of cortical porosity, and other newer imaging modalities in bone. Moreover, the technology and application in molecular, cellular, structural, functional imaging and quantitative imaging of soft tissues (joints and muscles) are also included in this meeting. The program of the IBDW is tailored to be both scientific as well as clinical with ample time provided for open discussion between all faculty and attendees; and, presentations of original research by young investigators.
The 20th IBDW will be held in Hong Kong and this is the second time to be taken place in Asia. We hope that we can bring the West to East. It would be an excellent platform to let engineers, clinicians and scientists join together for educational and intellectual exchanges in the field of musculoskeletal imaging, from R&D of advanced medical imaging technologies to applications.
