The workshop is intended to provide an overview on advanced and innovative medical-imaging applications, for the early diagnosis and therapeutic control of rheumatic musculo-skeletal diseases.


The workshop will focus on the use of alternative techniques such as MRI and US, also used in a combined manner. Moreover, it will include the discussion on appropriate data-analysis and 2D/3D visualization techniques that can increase and improve the information available to the doctor during the diagnostic process and follow-up. Finally, experimental demonstrators and database collections, which can be used as a reference for training and validation sessions, will be presented.
