IGSTK User Group Meeting, SPIE 2012 in San Diego, California, USA


To foster collaboration and communication within the image-guided therapy community, we will continue our tradition of having user group meeting at the SPIE conference this year.

We welcome our collaborators and users to join us and give talks about their research projects and experiences. Tentatively, we will divide the meeting time into 15 minutes slots for presentation and discussions.

  • This part is open for sign up. Interested group should send an email to Patrick Cheng (pcheng@cnmc.org) with your name, affiliation, and a short description of your project.


  • This event is not sponsored by SPIE and no registration is required
