IWBI brings together a diverse group of researchers, clinicians and representatives from industry, who are jointly committed to developing technology and other image-based tools for the early detection and subsequent management of breast cancer. The workshops are designed to help advance the fields of breast cancer and medical imaging through sharing of scientific discoveries, best clinical practices, and industrial innovations.
