Five undergraduate papers by Vinyas Harish, Maggie Hess, Mark Schumacher, Kyle Sunderland, and Matt Lougheed and two graduate student papers by Elodie Lugez and Amelie Meyer were accepted to the conference. The SPIE Medical Imaging conference is one of the largest international conferences on medical imaging. The prestige of this conference is further demonstrated by the fact that each fully refereed 10-page accepted paper is published in the conference proceedings, and indexed on PubMed for the medical research community. The full authorship and title for each paper is as follows:
