The 5th International Conference on Imaging Technologies in Biomedical Sciences (ITBS 2009) From Physiology and Cellular Biology to Pathology through Imaging will be held from September 13 through September 16, 2009 on the beautiful island of Milos, located in the southwest corner of the Cyclades Islands in Greece. This event is scheduled as the continuation of the previous ITBS-Conferences; it will be hosted in the Milos Conference Center - George Eliopoulos, in a quiet and modern environment with high aesthetic standards, surrounded by the island's special charm due to the rare morphology of its terrain and its mineral wealth. ITBS-2009 represents a unique opportunity for Physicians together with Physicists all over the world to present and discuss their work and the new development in a variety of subjects of the Imaging Technologies in the Biomedical Sciences.

  • Current Development in Imaging Technologies
  • Hardware Components, Data Acquisition and Reconstruction
  • Simulation Techniques
  • Radiopharmaceuticals and Contrast Media
  • Experimental and Small Animal Imaging
  • Clinical Imaging (PET, SPECT, CT, MRI) and Multimodalities
  • Image Visualisation and Processing
