The Preterm Imaging Team arrived in a warm autumnal Greece on 16th October for MICCAI 2016, escaping the wind and rain of England.

 

Andrew Melbourne helped organise the highly popular early morning MICCAI Running Club, visiting some of the local landmarks in Athens. There was a good turn out even after the conference dinner on Wednesday evening. Thanks to all who came along, it is the runners who make the event a success regardless of the preferred pace!

Wednesday saw a poster presentation from Eliza Orasanu on multi-modal spectral matching: Longitudinal analysis of the preterm cortex using multi-modal spectral matching and a fantastic podium presentation by Catherine Scott on ASL incorporated pharmacokinetic modelling of pet data with reduced acquisition time: Application to amyloid imaging.

Thursday was poster day for the Preterm Imaging Team with presentations on the EPICure data from Zach Eaton-Rosen (Beyond the Resolution Limit: Diffusion Parameter Estimation in Partial Volume) and presentations on advanced ASL image analysis from David Owen (Optimisation of arterial spin labelling using bayesian experimental design) and Catherine (ASL incorporated pharmacokinetic modelling of pet data with reduced acquisition time: Application to amyloid imaging, presented by Jieqing).

On Friday, the Preterm Imaging Team helped co-organise The Perinatal, Preterm and Paediatric Image Analysis workshop (PIPPI 2016) with researchers from UMC Utrecht and Imperial College London. The event was a success with good discussion within a cosy and friendly environment and there was unanimous agreement between the chairs on the Best Paper Award.

At PIPPI 2016 Andrew presented two pieces of work on Placental image analysis using coupled diffusion-weighted and multi-echo t2 MRI and a multi-compartment model and early work form the EPICure cohort on Analysis of brain tissue volume and composition in an extremely-preterm born adolescent cohort.
