International Symposium on

Ultrasonic Imaging and Tissue Characterization

VIRTUAL MEETING --- June 8 – June 10, 2022


Purpose — The Symposium provides a forum for discussion of new directions in state-of-the-art technology and research opportunities in ultrasonic and photoacoustic imaging and characterization of tissues. The meeting affords physicians, engineers, and physical scientists a unique venue for sharing their contributions to this important area of technology development related to disease detection, diagnosis, staging, treatment planning, and treatment monitoring.

Topics — Presentations are  solicited on 1) techniques for measuring ultrasonic properties of tissue, e.g., velocity, attenuation, scattering, and nonlinear effects; 2) ultrasonic imaging, photoacoustic imaging and Doppler techniques, including transducer and array technology; 3) signal processing and pattern recognition; 4) ultrasound-guided intervention and robotic ultrasound imaging; and 5) ultrasonic and photoacoustic properties of tissue and their dependence on physical and biological variables. Presentations describing high-quality research involving clinical trials of new techniques and instrumentation or new clinical applications of existing technology are particularly welcome.

Meeting venue — The meeting will be virtual again in 2022 because of severe travel constraints caused by Covid-related restrictions and budget concerns that are affecting many participants.

Meeting dates and times — Technical sessions will be held on June 8 to June 10, beginning at 8:00 a.m. and ending at 5:00 p.m. on June 8 and 9 and at 12:00 p.m. on June 10.

Program information — Detailed information on the program, as well as registration and logistical arrangements, will be emailed during the week of April 22.

Interest in attending or submitting a paper — As soon as possible, please complete the interest form on the Symposium web site: UITC Symposium.

Abstracts— Abstracts must be received by April 15 for technical review by the Program Committee. Prospective speakers will be informed during the week of April 22 regarding acceptance of their abstracts for presentation. Accepted abstracts will be available on our web site. No proceedings will be published.

Abstract format — For examples of the most recent abstract format, see Abstracts (2021) in UITC Symposium. The abstract body should be preceded by the title, authors’ names, abbreviated affiliations, and the email address of the corresponding author. The file should not exceed 300 words; references and equations should be used very sparingly; and figures and tables are not allowed. The name of the presenter must be underlined in the abstract. Please email your abstract in Microsoft Word to the co-chair: Marie Muller

One talk/speaker limit — A limit of one talk per speaker applies to all speakers, including invited speakers. No exceptions will be made. As stated above, please place an asterisk after the name of the presenter in the list of authors accompanying the abstract. Abstracts will not be accepted unless the speaker is specified.
