MICCAI is the major foreign scienti?c occasion within the ?eld of scientific snapshot computing and computer-assisted interventions. the yearly convention has a excessive scienti?c general by means of advantage of the edge for popularity, and hence MICCAI has equipped up a song list of attracting top scientists, engineersandcliniciansfromawiderangeoftechnicalandbiomedicaldisciplines. This yr, we got 786 submissions, good based on the former meetings in long island and London. 3 application chairs and a application committee of 31 scientists, all with a famous status within the ?eld of the convention, have been accountable for the choice of the papers.
