This event will take place between the 4th and 8th of July, 2016 in “the Little Paris of the East”, Bucharest, Romania.

The main topic of this year’s edition is Imaging in Cardiology.
SSIMA 2016 is organized by the University Politehnica of Bucharest, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and Eindhoven University of Technology.

Medical Imaging is the domain situated at the interface between Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics and Medicine and refers to the visualization of the body parts, organs, tissues or cells for clinical diagnosis, disease monitoring and treatment.

Advances in medical technology have improved the ability to detect and treat the cardiovascular disease at an early stage.

The progress occured in computer tomography (CT) imaging of the  heart and coronary arteries and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)  including quantitative estimates of coronary blood flow can be used as an alternative to invasive angiography.

Therapies for cardiac diseases such as defibrillation, ablation of ventricular tachycardia, and cardiac resynchronization therapy are improved or new one are developed due to the latest developments in cardiac modelling.

Nowadays, Medical Imaging is used not only for diagnosis and treatment but also for prevention, leading to lowering costs in healthcare on global scale and improving the public health. Consequently, the training of specialists in the medical imaging domain becomes more and more significant and it is the target of our Summer School.
