Reminder: Registration for 6th IWPFI still available

The 6th International Workshop for Pulmonary Functional Imaging (IWPFI) is being held July 18-20, 2013 in Madison, Wisconsin.  

“We find ourselves surrounded by new tools for quantitatively evaluating the function of the lungs and heart.  Understanding how to cost effectively use imaging-based biomarkers to follow disease progression, or response to therapy, is of critical importance to medicine. Please consider joining us for an informal three day workshop and a half day QIBA symposium that will allow the torch of enthusiasm for this burgeoning new science to be passed to the next generation of researchers and physicians.”

Yours Sincerely,

Mark L. Schiebler, M.D.                David Lynch, M.B.

President, 6th IWPFI                     QIBA


This workshop brings together experts from across many disciplines who study lung disease and work to develop new imaging tools and applications to better understand the structure and function of the lungs.

Topics included in this workshop include COPD, pediatric lung disease, asthma, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer, lung infection, lung transplant, and others.  Short didactic lectures will be mixed with scientific abstract presentations.

Both the Society of Thoracic Radiology and the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine have endorsed this workshop.
