The first National Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Medical Imaging was held on 3-4 October 2019 at the central building of TUMS.

The first National Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Medical Imaging was held on 3-4 October 2019 at the central building of TUMS.

The main segments of this conference included: artificial intelligence academy with the presence of the European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics (EuSoMII Academy) attended by lecturers from USA, Switzerland, Netherland, and Iran, AI in medical imaging competition, presentation of accepted abstracts, educational courses on hot topics in imaging informatics.

The side events of AMIN-2019 included three workshops on artificial intelligence in neuroradiology using Matlab, artificial intelligence using Python, and artificial intelligence in graphical environments were held on November 2nd and 5th 2019 at NBML.

The opening ceremony was initiated by Dr. Mohammad Reza Ay, the Director of NBML, and Dr. Mansoor Fatehi, Conference President of AIMIN 2019 on November 3th.

An exhibition was also held in the conference place participated by the activists in this field and related ones. A numbers of companies and institues participated in this exhibition, such as Archivemed company, Iranian Society of Radiology, ParsXRay company, Marco-Pacs company, Iran Brain Mapping Biobank, TUMS Preclinical Core Facility, Virtual University of Medical Sciences, and introduced their products and services. The Tajuizat Pezeshki Pars company not only participated in this exhibition but also sponsored AIMIN-2019.

The closing ceremony was held at the end of the conference with the presence of professors, participants, executive committee, and the winners of the AI competition, and top abstracts were also honored.

Top abstracts winners were as follows:

  1. Mahdi Yousefzadeh from IPM
  2. Mostafa Ghalich Oghli from the research department of Med Fanavaran Plus
  3. Ramin Nateghi from Shiraz University of Technology

It is worth noting that all accepted abstracts which were declared prior to AIMIN-2019 will be published on the Iranian Journal of Radiology, and a unique DOI address will be assigned to them. This Journal is indexed in ISI.

The winners of the AI competition (Intelligent Assessment of Imaging Biomarkers of Dementia) were as follows:

  1. Golchehreh Ahmadi and Najmeh Yousefi from the Virtual University of Medical Sciences
  2. Mahdi Yousefzadeh from IPM
  3. Ashkan Soleimani and Seyed Shervin Bani-Kamali from Tarbiat Modares University
