How complex data should be presented to facilitated their analysis is closely related to MICCAI, and it is relevant to achieve clinical acceptance. This tutorial focuses on presenting techniques primarily developed in the visualization community, where interaction and efficiency of visualizations taking perceptual and cognitive abilities into account is a core aspect. Advanced visualization techniques are particularly important for high-dimensional data, such as PC-MRI, where blood flow over time is represented, and cohort study data, where data of thousands of patients are visualized and analyzed. These and other topics are covered with a focus on principal solutions instead of technical details. The speakers will focus on presenting methods, discussing their applications, their combination, as well as, the link to medical image analysis.
Image analysis is often focused on the quantification from imaging data, while visualization involves the user by presenting the data and obtaining qualitative information. Both approaches have their advantages and disadvantages that might apply to different situations. The tutorial should emphasize and strengthen these relations. Thus, we incorporate a panel discussion on open problems that may be solved by cooperation between medical image analysis and visualization experts. The panel integrates visualization and image analysis experts. It is also intended to identify and discuss joint research and development opportunities.
