The use of imaging and AI technologies have become an essential component in many medical applications and clinical practices. New technologies are emerging to process different sources of medical sets and images (e.g. X-ray, MRI, CT scans, ultrasound, microscopy, hyperspectral images, etc.) and deliver a variety of computer-aided applications for prediction, diagnostics, analysis, visualisation, etc. This special session aims to bring the academic researchers together from the medical imaging, AI and image processing communities to discuss the major challenges in the field of medical, healthcare and social care applications. We welcome contributions in the fields of medical AI, medical imaging, Image registration, Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD), Big data in medical imaging, medical data mining, medical signal processing, visualisation of medical data, etc. This special session will cover the multidisciplinary nature of these main challenges (e.g., robustness, high accuracy and reliability) and the recent developments in relevant disciplines. It will also provide a platform for interested academics and industries to discuss, exchange ideas, and create solid coordinated collaborations.
