Dear All,

This year I am organizing a challenge for analysis  of traumatic brain 
injury MRI data, please find further details below.

Thank you

    mTOP: Call for Participation

    Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Outcome Prediction

What:  MRI Feature Extraction / Unsupervised Classification
When:  17 October 2016
Where: MICCAI 2016, Athens, Greece, http://www.miccai2016.org/en/
Web:   https://tbichallenge.wordpress.com/

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause for death and long term 
disability across demographics. Predicting the outcome of patients 
suffering from TBI could bring many benefits for clinical decision 
making and development of new therapeutic concepts. However, the strong 
heterogeneity of the injury pattern and the complex change of pathology 
complicate the prognosis. This especially holds true for mild TBI 
(mTBI), where lesions are non-prevalent and conventional MRI often 
appears normal, but injury can cause post-concussional symptoms and 
neurocognitive dysfunction.

This challenge asks for methods that focus on finding differences 
between healthy subjects and TBI patients and sort the given data in 
distinct categories in an unsupervised manner.
Researchers are invited to submit novel or their existing methods. mTOP 
will be held in conjunction with the Brain Lesion Segmentation Workshop 
at the International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer 
Assisted Intervention (MICCAI) 2016

We are looking forward to welcome you as participant.
Best Regards,
Stefan Winzeck, Marta Correia, Ben Glocker & Bjoern Menze
