Abstract submission deadline for the ISMRM Cardiovascular Flow, Function & Tissue Mechanics Workshop in Sintra, Portugal, is less than a month away. As one of the organizers, I have it on good authority that abstracts will be reviewed, and authors notified, within less than a week from the July 17 deadline :-)
In addition to two days focused on the state-of-the-art in MRI-derived flow and motion measurements, one day will be devoted to image-based modelling. Ross Ethier, Luca Antiga and I will review the basics, while Juan Cebral, Frank Gijsen and Charley Taylor will present the state-of-the-art in applications.
This is a unique opportunity for clinicians, imagers, and modellers to get together and discuss the promises and pitfalls of deriving functional information from various combinations of imaging and modelling.
