Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the International Conference on BIOIMAGING (BIOIMAGING 2014). Co-organized by the ESEO Group, this conference is sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC), in cooperation with the Special Interest Group on Artificial Intelligence (ACM Sigart), the Special Interest Group on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Biomedical Informatics (ACM SIGBio), the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), EUROMICRO and the International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth (ISfTeH). BIODEVICES is also technically co-sponsored by the European Society for Engineering and Medicine (ESEM), the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) and IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE EMBS). Bioimaging is a term that collectively refers to tools used to create structural or functional images of living objects or systems. Examples are many, including: PET and HRRT PET, MRI and fMRI, MEG, SPECT and so on. Medical imaging is an important case of bioimaging referring to the technique and process used to create images of the human body, anatomical areas, tissue, and so on, down to the molecular level, for clinical purposes, seeking to reveal,diagnose, or examine diseases, or medical science, including the study of normal anatomy and physiology. Another field closely related to bioimaging is structural biology, a branch of molecular biology, biochemistry, and biophysics concerned with the spatial and temporal arrangement of biological macromolecules. BIOIMAGING is integrated in BIOSTEC (International Joint Conference on Biomedical Engineering Systems and Technologies) a conference composed by five complementary and co-located conferences, namely: - BIODEVICES - the International Conference on Biomedical Electronics and Devices; - BIOINFORMATICS - International Conference on Bioinformatics Models, Methods and Algorithms; - BIOSIGNALS - International Conference on Bio-inspired Systems and Signal Processing; - HEALTHINF - International Conference on Health Informatics; - BIOIMAGING - International Conference on Bioimaging. The joint conference, BIOSTEC received 362 paper submissions from 59 countries, which demonstrates the success and global dimension of this conference. From these, 51 papers were published as full papers, 86 were accepted for short presentation and another 93 for poster presentation. These numbers, leading to a “full-paper” acceptance ratio of about 14% and an oral paper acceptance ratio close to 38%, show the intention of preserving a high quality forum for the next editions of this conference. BIOSTEC’s program includes a panel and five invited talks delivered by internationally distinguished speakers, namely: Mário Oliveira (Santa Marta Hospital, Portugal), Patrick Flandrin (ENS de Lyon, France), Paolo Dario (Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Italy), Arcadi Navarro (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Spain) and Boudewijn Lelieveldt (Leiden University Medical Center, Netherlands). The BIOSTEC program also includes a Doctoral Consortium on Biomedical Engineering Systems and Technologies that brought together Ph.D. students within the biomedical field to discuss their research in an international forum. We would like to thank the Doctoral Consortium Chair, Roberto Longo, for his collaboration in providing this added-value to BIOSTEC. As in previous editions of the Conference, based on the reviewers’ evaluations and on the quality of presentations, a short list of authors will be selected and invited to submit extended revised versions of their papers for a book that will be published by Springer with the best papers of BIOSTEC 2014. We would like to express our thanks to all participants. First of all, to the authors, whose quality work is the essence of this conference. Next, we thank all the members of the program committee and the auxiliary reviewers for their diligence and expert reviewing. We would also like to deeply thank the invited speakers for their excellent contribution in sharing their knowledge and vision. Fourthly, we thank the BIOIMAGING Program Co-chairs, Mário Forjaz Secca and Jan Schier, whose collaboration was much appreciated. Finally, special thanks to all the members of the INSTICC team whose collaboration was fundamental for the success of this conference. We wish you all an inspiring conference and an unforgettable stay in Angers, Loire Valley, France and we hope to meet you again next year for BIOIMAGING 2015, details of which will soon be available at http://www.biodevices.biostec.org.
