Stay Ahead of the Industry

The Symposium on Instrumentation and Medical Imaging (XISIIM2023), a biannual brazilian event, aims to bring together researchers from important lines of activity in the fields of Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics, in particular professionals, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students working in the areas of training, processing and applications of medical imaging, or development, implementation and application of instrumentation for biomedical purposes.

In 2023, the event in its XI edition will be hybrid format with broadcasting through the YouTube channel of the Physics Department and in this specific edition it will be held in conjunction with the Medical Physics Week of the Bachelor's Degree in Medical Physics-FFCLRP-USP and with the evaluation process of the graduate program in Physics Applied to Medicine and Biology-FFCLRP-USP bringing a greater synergy among undergraduate/postgraduate students, researchers, and professionals in the field.

The event will feature two main thematic areas, which will include the following topics

Medical Imaging:

  • Imaging Methods and Quantitative Techniques

  • Image quality and processing

  • Image-guided medical interventions and therapeutic procedures

  • Machine learning applied to medical imaging

Biomedical instrumentation:

  • Biomedical devices

  • Measuring and control devices in Biomedicine

  • Electromedical equipment

  • Brain-machine interface

  • 3D Manufacturing

  • Biomaterials

Norge Cruz Hernández, Ph.D.

Norge.jpg

Norge Cruz Hernández

Sevilla University/Spain

He has extensive experience in periodic processing of materials in various systems and problems. Recently he has been engaged in the investigation of biomaterials for 3D printing of medical devices, such as bone implants, and has filed a patent. The invention consists of the modification of a commercial resin that is used as a material for 3D printing by the stereolithography method. The resulting parts allow the exact reproduction of parts of bone tissue.
