MM-WHS 2017: Multi-Modality Whole Heart Segmentation Challenge in conjunction with STACOM and MICCAI 2017


This is the 2nd CFP for MM-WHS 2017.

!!! Important Deadline Changes and Prizes Info Updates !!!

Together with the success of the STACOM workshop (held with MICCAI since 2011), we present the 1st Challenge on Multi-Modality Whole Heart Segmentation (to be held with MICCAI 2017, in Quebec City, Canada). The Challenge provides 120 images, including 60 cardiac CT and 60 cardiac MRI, all acquired in real clinical environment, for various research groups to test and validate their methods, particularly for multi-modality whole heart segmentation. The aim of the Workshop will not only be benchmarking various whole heart segmentation algorithms, but also to cover the topic of general cardiac image segmentation and registration and modeling. The best work will be awarded with prizes funded by Nvidia and Arterys, and the accepted manuscript will be included into the proceedings published with the STACOM workshop (Lecture Notes in Computer Science LNCS | Springer). In addition, the benchmarked algorithms will be summarised to form a full paper for potential publications in MedIA and IEEE TMI, and the participants will share the credit.



* Whole heart segmentation (WHS), including
