Diagnostic Imaging Market expected to reach $830 Million by 2016

Millennium Research Group (MRG) predicts that the Indian market for diagnostic imaging systems will see a strong growth rate in the coming years and would grow at an average rate of nearly nine per cent per year. It also predicts that the market would reach almost $830 million by 2016. Strong growth is expected in the low-end and mid-range systems purchased by small hospitals and facilities in rural areas that did not have imaging capability previously. Higher priced systems for urban facilities transitioning to higher-end CT and MRI systems and from analog to digital X-ray imaging are also expected to grow rapidly.

Biomedical Revolution National Conference on Biomedical Engineering, Nagercoil, 16th March


We are extremely happy to inform you that we are organising the First national Conference on BIOMED-REVOLUTION (BIOMED-REV 2012) on 16TH MARCH 2012,Nagercoil, Tamilnadu, India.

The goal of the conference emphasizes interdisciplinary research on Artificial Intelligence, Bio-materials, Bio-informatics, Medical Instrumentation, Nano-Technology, Bio-signal and Medical Image Processing, VLSI, Artificial organs & embedded system, MEMS etc…

Lecture notes : Algortihms used for Medical Image Processing

This course has two components. On the one hand, it is an introduction to digital image analysis presenting selected fundamental problems in medical image analysis, computer vision, photo/video editing, and graphics. We cover such basic concepts as image segmentation, registration, object recognition/matching, tracking, texture, etc. On the other hand, this is an applied course on standard computer science algorithms where students develop practical understanding of dynamic programming, graph based algorithms, computational geometry methods, etc. In fact, image analysis provides a stimulating environment for studying algorithms as their outputs can be intuitively visualized. Students with previous background in algorithms will be exposed to applications in image analysis, while students already familiar with problems in imaging will learn efficient methods based on standard CS algorithms. The course emphasizes the design, analysis, and implementation of algorithms in the context of 2D/3D medical images, photo and video data.

Biosignal 2012-21st Biennial International Conference 28-30th June

The conference should give a forum for information exchange among theoreticians, engineers, and medical people. Original papers, research results, and contributions concerning interesting technical solutions will be appreciated as well as clinical experiences and survey lectures for presentation in the following areas:

  1. Biological signal processing
  2. Medical imaging and image analysis
  3. Modeling in biomedicine
  4. Cell and tissue engineering
  5. Bioinformatics

The conference will be open to contributions from related fields.
