A Summit on Color in Medical Imaging was held on May 8-9 2013 in Silver Spring, MD. Experts from all relevant areas discussed the best way forward to provide improved color support for medical imaging applications. The ICC Medical Imaging Working Group was formed as a reponse to the need for future activity identified at this meeting.
The first physical meeting of the MIWG will be in Vancouver, BC, (to be confirmed) as part of the ICC Working Group meetings on November 18-20 2013. Further details will be posted here when available.
ICC also held a Color Experts' Day in February 2013 in conjunction with Chiba University, which included papers on medical imaging by professors and research students at Chiba.
