The Statistical Atlases and Computational Modeling of the Heart (STACOM) workshop has been running annually at MICCAI since 2010. The 14th edition of STACOM workshop is going to be held in conjunction with the MICCAI 2023 in Vancouver, Canada. The STACOM workshop is aiming to create a collaborative forum for young/senior researchers (engineers, biophysicists, mathematicians) and clinicians, working on: statistical analysis of cardiac morphology and dynamics, computational modelling of the heart and fluid dynamics, data/models sharing, personalisation of cardiac electro-mechanical models, quantitative image analysis and translational methods into clinical practice.

Title: Artificial Intelligence for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) is the current gold standard imaging modality for heart, providing in-depth information on cardiac structure, motion, tissue properties etc. However, CMR is traditionally an expensive examination due to its slow imaging and complicated analysis. In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has made significant advancements to improve the accessibility of CMR through accelerated acquisition and automated reporting. We will discuss the advancements of AI in the field of CMR, current challenges, and opportunities for future.

Title: Physics-Driven Synthetic Data Artificial Intelligence for Biomedical Magnetic Resonance

Deep learning has driven innovation in the field of biomedical magnetic resonance, but encounters the bottleneck of insufficient or even unavailable training data. In this talk, we will discuss an emerging paradigm, imaging physics-based data synthesis for network training. Signal generation models, enhanced data generation and advanced neural network structures with representative applications, particularly on fast, parametric and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, are discussed.

Cardiac MRI Reconstruction Challenge

STACOM 2023 hosts a challenge on reconstruction of cardiac MRI (CMRxRecon).

Please note different timeline for this challenge:

  • 14 July : abstract / placeholder submission on the EquinOCS portal
  • 14 August : paper submission by email to the organisers

image There are two tasks in this challenge: 1) cine MRI reconstruction, and 2) mapping reconstruction; both with different acceleration factors of 4x, 8x, and 10x.

Dataset: A multi-channel k-space dataset of 300 cases, including short-axis, 2/3/4-chamber long-axis cine and T1/T2 mapping, with approximately 500,000 images.
