Attendees are asked to bring their own Windows laptop for evaluation of digital image data sets (DICOM-readers can be installed).

Poster Session: Participants are invited to bring posters on own scientific work on imaging (one poster per participant, maximum size DIN A0, upright). Posters will be shown during the whole Summer School.

The SuSIE Forum will provide time for knowledge exchange of attendees, faculty and representatives of providers of imaging solutions. Discussion of: perspectives for the further development of imaging techniques; how patients can get access to imaging-based diagnostics and therapy across different health care systems in Europe.
