The annual CARS congress facilitates innovation and contributes to modern medicine on a worldwide basis. CARS' traditional focus on research and development for computer assisted systems and their applications in radiology and surgery has been a key player in the development of medical informatics for more than 25 years. Its close collaboration with the ISCAS, EuroPACS, CAR, CAD and CMI societies will continue as they jointly hold their annual meetings with the 25th CARS Congress in Berlin in 2011.
The CARS Congress Organising Committee invites you to be part of this extraordinary scientific/medical community, which gives medicine a new perspective. Join them in Berlin in June 2011, if you work in the fields of radiology, surgery, engineering, informatics and/or healthcare management and have an interest in topics, such as:
» Image- and model-guided interventions;
» Medical imaging;
» Image processing and visualisation;
» Computer aided diagnosis;
» Medical simulation and education;
» Surgical navigation and robotics;
» Model-guided medicine, and
» Personalised medicine.
New PACS applications, including IT infrastructures adapted for the operating room as well as related results from the DICOM and IHE working groups are also within the scope of CARS. Clinical specialties represented at CARS include:
» Image Guided Tumour Ablation Therapies;
» Cardiovascular Imaging;
» Computed Maxillofacial Imaging;
» Computer Assisted Radiation Therapy;
» Computer Assisted Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgery;
» Computer Assisted Head and Neck, and ENT Surgery;
» Image Guided Neurosurgery, and
» Minimally Invasive Cardiovascular and Thoracoabdominal Surgery.
Please note that the deadline for paper and abstract submissions for CARS 2011 in Berlin is January 10, 2011.
