SIG Medical Ultrasound (SIG-MUS)
This SIG provides a forum for identifying, investigating, and solving key challenges and exploring future research directions for the next breakthroughs in medical ultrasound.
SIG-MUS aims to bring together the medical image computing (MIC) and computer-assisted intervention (CAI) communities to work towards the next generation of medical ultrasound imaging methods and systems. We envisage a future for clinical ultrasound that truly combines advances both in MIC and CAI, acknowledging the unique capabilities of ultrasound as an interactive anatomic and functional imaging modality that can be manipulated directly by human operators or robotic systems. This SIG also helps bridge the research and clinical ultrasound communities to design and implement new ultrasound-enabled applications that provide revolutionary healthcare benefits.
