CARS 2016 – Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery

30th International Congress and Exhibition, Joint Congress of IFCARS / ISCAS / CAD / CMI

The CARS congress is the yearly event for a renowned international community of scientists, engineers and physicians to present and discuss the key innovations that shape modern medicine on a worldwide basis. 
Founded in 1985, CARS has played a leading role in medical and imaging informatics for more than 30 years by focusing on research and development on novel algorithms and systems and their applications in radiology and surgery. Its growth and impact is due to CARS’s close collaboration with the ISCAS, CAR, CAD and CMI organizations. 
Following the long term successful cooperation, in many parts of the world, in 2016 these prestigious scientific communities will jointly hold their annual meetings as part of the 30th CARS Congress in Heidelberg, Germany. 
The CARS Congress Organizing Committee invites you to come to Heidelberg in June 2016, for an extraordinary event in which scientific/medical presentations as well as stimulating discussions will foster new visions on the future of medicine. 
At CARS you will have the opportunity to meet scholars and practising experts in the fields of radiology, surgery, clinical medicine, engineering, informatics and healthcare management who have an interest in topics, such as 

  • advanced medical imaging
  • image- and model-guided interventions
  • image processing and visualization
  • intelligent operating room of the future
  • decision and action support in surgical management
  • computer aided diagnosis
  • medical simulation and evaluation, and e-Learning
  • surgical navigation and robotics
  • model-guided and personalised medicine
  • integrated patient care
