the "International Conference on Image Formation in X-ray Computed Tomography",
widely known as "The CT Meeting", is dedicated to basic problems related to X-ray CT.
It is a friendly, informal, workshop-style meeting where most experts in this field
come together. The participants, far more than hundred scientists, researchers and
students, have the unique chance to present, discuss and understand the latest
techniques of CT design, acquisition technology, image reconstruction, artifact
reduction, dose reduction, ...
We welcome submissions on all topics that are related to image formation in CT.
Ideal submissions will clearly demonstrate the impact of the investigated technology on the CT image.
Evaluations with computer simulations and real data are both acceptable. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Contrast agent and X-ray dose reduction
Deep learning for CT image formation
Dual and multi-energy imaging
Dynamic and perfusion imaging
Geometric and spectral calibration
Image quality and dose assessment
New data acquisition geometries
Novel CT technologies
Photon counting CT
Scatter and beam-hardening reduction
Small animal imaging
Technological advancements in CT often overstretch the skills of medical staff and are therefore often orphaned or abused in the routine setting.
The plenary lecture "Intelligent Clinical CT" by Matthias May, University Hospital Erlangen, will demonstrate conflicts and solutions to provide
the best personalized and standardized composition of examination parameters in modern CT.
Three short courses will complement the CT meeting and introduce relevant basics on deep learning, photon counting CT, and image quality assessment.
These 40 minutes lectures will be presented by Yuxiang Xing (Tsinghua University Beijing),
by Thomas Flohr (Siemens Healthineers) and by Frédéric Noo (University of Utah), respectively.
There will be a sightseeing trip on Saturday which is also attractive for family members.
Details on this optional event can be found here.
The CT Meeting 2020 is the sixth in a successful series of biennial meetings.
We are happy to welcome you to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Regensburg, Germany in August 2020.
